Education and Inspections Bill — Third Reading — 24 May 2006 at 18:55

The majority Aye voters agreed that the Education and Inspections Bill should be read a Third Time.

It has now passed all its stages in the House of Commons and moves to the House of Lords for further deliberation before it becomes law as an Act of Parliament.

The main aims of the Education and Inspections Bill were to[1]:

  • Allow schools to achieve 'foundation' or 'trust' status - this gives governing bodies greater freedom to manage the school.
  • Reaffirm the existing ban on selection by ability and proposes a ban on interviewing.
  • Give local authorities greater scope to intervene more quickly in failing schools.
  • Ensure local authorities provide free school transport for the poorest families.
  • Enable nutritional standards to be applied to all food and drink on school premises.
  • Allow staff to discipline children for bad behaviour even outside of school.
  • Ensure parents are held responsible for excluded pupils.
