Shared Education Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Section 7: ‘Review of shared education’

Section 7 places a requirement on DE to lay a report before the Assembly, no more than two years after the Act receives Royal Assent and on a biennial basis thereafter which details the extent to which DE and EA have exercised their duty and the extent to which relevant arms length bodies have exercised their power as well as levels of participation, efficiency in use of shared education resources and the impact on educational attainment and good relations.  In reporting, DE will seek to assess the impact across s.75 groups and not just the core components as set out in the legislative definition.
