Education and Inspections Bill — Keep current proportion of parent governors on governing bodies — rejected — 19 Oct 2006 at 12:10

The majority Not Contents defeated an attempt to amend[1] the Education and Inspections Bill. The amendment would have maintained the current legal proportion of elected parent governors on a school's governing body when a school becomes a foundation, or Trust, school. More information on what it means to be a 'Foundation' or 'Trust' school can be found here.

The main aims of the Education and Inspections Bill were to[2]:

  • 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.
