EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Order 2020 (S.I. 2020/1020) (“the 2020 Order”), by inserting a new article 2A so as to modify the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document 2020 (“the Document”), which is given legal effect by the 2020 Order, until the end of the school year beginning in 2020. The effect of the modification is to reduce by one the number of days for which a teacher must be available to teach pupils and perform other duties in that school year, and to make a corresponding modification to allow for one day on which a teacher must be available either to teach pupils and perform other duties or only to perform other duties. This is to allow teachers to be available for an additional optional in-service training day to be taken by schools in that school year.

The modifications to the Document are published alongside the Document on the website of the Department for Education (www.education.gov.uk). It can be accessed on the Government website, at www.gov.uk. Copies are available to purchase from TSO Customer Services, PO Box 29, Norwich, NR3 1GN, telephone 0333 202 5070 or for inspection at reasonable times at the offices of the Department for Education, Sanctuary Buildings, Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BT.

The Order makes retrospective provision, under section 123(3) of the Education Act 2002, to provide that article 2A has effect on and after 1st September 2020 notwithstanding that the Order comes into force after that date.

An impact assessment has not been prepared for this Order as no impact on businesses or civil society organisations is foreseen. The impact on the public sector is minimal.

(2)

Sections, 122, 123 and 126 of the Education Act 2002 were amended by S.I. 2010/1158.

(3)

“School teachers” is defined for these purposes in section 122(3) to (6) of the Education Act 2002. The functions of the Secretary of State under sections 122 to 124, 126 and 127 of that Act, so far as they were exercisable in relation to school teachers in Wales, were transferred to the Welsh Ministers by virtue of article 39(3) of the Welsh Ministers (Transfer of Functions) Order 2018 (S.I. 2018/644).

(5)

For the definition of “school year” see, by virtue of section 212(2) and (3)(f) of the Education Act 2002, section 579(1) of the Education Act 1996 (c.56). The definition of “school year” was inserted into section 579(1) by the Education Act 1997 (c.44), Schedule 7, paragraph 43; there are other amendments to section 579(1) which are not relevant to this Order.
