Education Bill — Control of Regulation — 3 Jul 2002 at 17:35
However, this amendment was overturned by the House of Commons on 15th July 2002. It then went back to the House of Lords on 23rd July 2002 where Peers eventually settled on a compromise version of the clause.
The main aims of the Education Bill were to:
- Allow schools to exempt themselves from laws which prevented them from innovating. However, this is dependent on the Secretary of State's approval.
- Give good schools the option of qualifying for greater flexibility in the National Curriculum and teachers' pay.
- Allow schools to join together in a federation under a single governing body.
- Further regulate school admissions, exclusions and attendance policies.
- Give the Secretary of State further powers to intervene in failing schools.
- Introduce a new regulatory regime for independent schools.
