Consultation on re-enactment of the Health Standards Provisions of the Education (Teachers' Qualifications and Health Standards) (England) Regulations 1999.

The Education (Health Standards) (England) Regulations 2003 ('the new Regulations") stem from the Education Act 2002, and re-enact the health standards provisions of the Education (Teachers' Qualifications and Health Standards) (England) Regulations 1999.

The new Regulations are aimed at protecting the health and welfare of pupils, teachers, and other staff in schools and certain further education establishments. They, therefore, maintain the requirement on employers of teachers and certain other staff at maintained schools and certain further education establishments to satisfy themselves as to the health and physical and mental capacities of such staff.
