School Bill

08th Dec 2022

The Education Secretary Gillian Keegan has confirmed that the Schools Bill introduced earlier this year will now not progress.  

Ms Keegan said that parliamentary time had been ‘reprioritised’ to focus on tackling the rising cost of living. 

She also said that ministers ‘remain committed’ to the objectives of the Schools Bill. She said ‘A lot of the Schools White Paper is being implemented and did not require legislation in many cases’. 

The government will look at making progress with its academy plans without new legislation, and the academy regulation review will continue.
