Draft regulations and guidance on School Governance Federation and Collaborations

From 1 September 2003 maintained schools will be able to federate under one governing body if they wish to do so. Schools will also be able to have increased collaborative arrangements with other maintained schools, including joint meetings of governing bodies and joint committees. The draft regulations set out the procedures interested schools will need to follow in operating in a federation.
