EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (New Secondary School Proposals) (England) Regulations 2006.

They amend regulation 17(1), by inserting new sub-paragraphs (c) and (d), to provide that school organisation committees must refer to the adjudicator any proposals that the local education authority (for the area in which the school organisation committee has been established) has made, or that relate to the establishment of a Church of England or Roman Catholic school (or a school of both those denominations).

They also make a number of minor corrections mostly of typographical errors.
