LORDS MERITS COMMITTEE TO PUBLISH REPORT ON IMPACT OF REGULATIONS ON SCHOOLS

On Friday 13 March, the House of Lords Select Committee on the Merits of Statutory Instruments will publish its report on the impact of new Regulations on schools.

The Committee has been investigating why the Schools Department thinks so many Regulations are necessary, and how well the Department manages the flow of Regulations. The Committee has in particular listened to the views of education professionals actually responsible for implementing new requirements in schools.

The Committee has taken evidence from the Schools Minister, Jim Knight MP, as well as a wide range of witnesses directly involved in running schools.
