Education (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 27 - Prohibition of change of category to foundation school

55.Schedule 8 to the 1998 Act makes provision enabling schools in Wales to change categories. This section amends Schedule 8 to the 1998 Act so as to remove the ability of a local authority or a governing body to propose that a school change its category so as to become a foundation school. This will not prevent a school which is currently a foundation school changing category so as to become a different category.
