Government Response: The Education in Multiple Settings (Wales) Regulations 2022


Merit Scrutiny point 1:


The Welsh Government notes the Committee Report and agrees with its conclusion.  There is a partial definition of the term “head teacher” in section 579(1) of the Education Act 1996 to the effect that head teacher includes acting head teacher.  The term acting head teacher is not itself defined in the 1996 Act. The Welsh Government agrees that it would have been helpful to the reader to have referred the reader to the partial definition in section 579(1) of the 1996 Act.  We will amend the 2022 Regulations to address this point at the next available opportunity.
