EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

These Regulations, made under section 13(4) of the Children Act 2004 (“the Act”), amend the Local Safeguarding Children Boards Regulations 2006.

A children's services authority in England must take reasonable steps to ensure that the Local Safeguarding Children Board established by them in accordance with section 13 of the Act includes representatives of relevant persons and bodies of such descriptions as may be prescribed. The following persons and bodies are prescribed by the amendment to the Local Safeguarding Children Boards Regulations 2006 made by regulation 2: the governing body of a maintained school; the proprietor of a non-maintained special school; the proprietor of a city technology college, a city college for the technology of the arts or an Academy; and the governing body of a further education institution the main site of which is situated in the authority's area. Section 10(10) of the Act provides that, in deciding whether the main site of an institution within the further education sector is situated within the area of a children's services authority, the authority and the governing body of the institution must have regard to any guidance given to them by the Secretary of State.

An assessment of the impact of these Regulations is set out at section 10 of the Explanatory Memorandum which is available alongside these Regulations at www.opsi.gov.uk.
