This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 2 December 2011, is made under the Education Act 1989 (the Act). It amends the Education (2012 School Staffing) Order 2011. That order's purpose is, in accordance with section 91H of the Act, to limit the financial liability of the Crown arising out of its obligation under section 91C of the Act to pay the salaries of all regular teachers employed at payrolled schools. To that end that order prescribes limitations on the number of regular teachers (that is, teachers who are not relieving teachers) who may be employed at payrolled schools during the 2012 school year.
Clause 4 inserts a new clause 18A, which prescribes a new limitation. The new limitation prevents a school's board (being a board that employs 1 or more resource teacher managers: learning and behaviour) from employing specified resource teachers to whom leadership payments have been allocated if the total of those payments would exceed a number, calculated in a prescribed way, of those payments for the school.
