Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 7 September 2012, amends the Education (2013 School Staffing) Order 2012 (the principal order). It reverses some policies adopted in the principal order, inserts some new policies, and makes some other minor changes that do not alter the effect of the principal order.

This order restores the position as it was under the Education (2012 School Staffing) Order 2011 in relation to—

  • specialist instruction rolls (amendments to clauses 7, 8, 46, 49, and the insertion of a new clause 8A); and

  • staffing ratios (amendments to clause 49).

The new policies implemented by this order are as follows:

  • new ratios are adopted to reflect an increased allocation of middle management allowances available to secondary schools and high schools (amendments to clauses 20 and 21):

  • entitlement transfer agreements between schools may now (subject to some restrictions) provide for the transfer of both middle management allowances and senior management allowances (amendments to clause 46):

  • changes are to be made to the way that students enrolled in secondary-tertiary programmes are funded. As a consequence, such students will not be counted towards the curriculum staffing calculation of schools, but will still count towards the base curriculum and added guidance components of staffing calculations (amendments to clause 49):

  • the Secretary will be able to exempt a school board or a commissioner from the limitations imposed by this order if the school is subject to any intervention under Part 7A of the Education Act 1989, and not just if a commissioner has been appointed (new clause 66).

The minor changes made by this order are—

  • to provisions relating to the Kelston and van Asch Deaf Education Centres (clauses 15 and 80, with the consequential revocation of Schedules 5 and 10); and

  • correction of a wrong cross-reference in clause 21(3); and

  • to wording in clauses 28 and 59.
