Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Education (Individual Pupil’s Achievements) (Information) Regulations 1993 (“the principal Regulations”) which apply in relation to pupils and former pupils at maintained schools in England.
The main amendment is to regulation 4 of the principal Regulations, which concerns the head teacher’s report (“the report”) to parents and adult pupils. The report is now additionally to include information about the educational achievements of all pupils at schools in England who were in the final year of the second key stage in the preceding school year (regulations 2 and 6).
Changes are made regarding the report relating to pupils in the final year of key stage one required by the principal Regulations in respect of the information concerning science and the attainment targets in English (regulations 4, 5 and 6).
The head teacher’s report on a school leaver, which is made available to him by the head teacher under regulation 6 of the principal Regulations, is no longer required to contain information relating to results of any public examination and vocational qualifications (regulations 3 and 7). It is though still required to include information as to the pupil’s progress and achievements in subjects and activities forming part of the school curriculum for the school year in which the pupil leaves the school.
Schedule 2 contains a number of minor amendments updating references in the principal Regulations.
