CLA400 -  The Federation of Maintained Schools (Wales) Regulations 2014

 

The Education Wales Measure 2011 provided local authorities with the power to establish a federation of two or more schools using a process to be set out in regulations. These Regulations set out the process local authorities and governing bodies are required to follow to federate, de-federate or dissolve a federation; set out the constitution and membership of a federated governing body, which is between 15 and 27 governors; impose a cap of six on the number of schools which may federate and set out the governance framework within which federated governing bodies operate and conduct their business.  In addition they consolidate, with some amendments, the Federation of Maintained Schools and Miscellaneous Amendments (Wales) Regulations 2010 and revoke those Regulations.
