1 Diocesan Boards of Education.E

(1)For every diocese there shall be a Diocesan Board of Education which shall have the functions assigned to it by this Measure and shall be responsible to the diocesan synod; and references in this Measure to “the Board” shall be construed as referring to the Diocesan Board of Education for the diocese concerned.

(2)The Board shall be constituted in accordance with the provisions of Part I of the Schedule to this Measure, except that if the diocesan synod resolve that instead of being so constituted the Board shall be constituted in accordance with provisions agreed by that synod, the diocesan synod may with the consent of the bishop request the Secretary of State to make an order for the Board to be constituted in accordance with that resolution, and the Secretary of State upon receiving such a request may if he thinks fit make an order accordingly.

(3)The Secretary of State may amend or revoke an order made under subsection (2) above only upon a request made by the diocesan synod with the consent of the bishop of the diocese, and the amendment or revocation shall be in accordance with the resolution of that synod.

(4)The bishop, after consultation with the Board, shall appoint a director of education for the diocese who shall act as secretary of the Board.

(5)The Board may be a body corporate or unincorporate.

(6)The provisions of Part II of the Schedule to this Measure shall have effect with respect to the proceedings of the Board, whether the Board is constituted in accordance with the provisions of Part I of that Schedule or an order made by the Secretary of State.
