Education and Adoption Bill completes passage through Parliament

February 26th, 2016

On Tuesday this week, the Education and Adoption Bill completed its passage through Parliament, with the Commons considering the Lords’ proposed amendments. Some were agreed.  These were largely clarifications of the Secretary of State’s powers to take action on “coasting schools”.

The Bill gives a new power of intervention in such schools by adding to the grounds on which SoS can take action in the Education and Skills Act 2006.
