Education and Inspections Bill — Number of votes needed on a governing body to change a school's status — rejected — 19 Oct 2006 at 12:40

The majority Not Contents defeated an amendment[1] to the Education and Inspections Bill. This would have required school governing boards who wanted to move to Trust status to have a two thirds majority rather than a simple majority. Usually school board decisions only need a simple majority, but proponents of this amendment thought that acquiring Trust status was a sufficiently momentous decision that it should require a stronger mandate. However, the amendment was rejected. 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.
