Public consultation on changes to Education Law now live

Share this page

Wednesday 18 January 2023

The consultation survey on the Education Law is live and running until 6th March 2023.

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture wants as much community input as possible before finalising its proposals for a new Law, which will replace current legislation.

Islanders can access the consultation survey by visiting www.gov.gg/yourviews.

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture is seeking to update the Education Law, which is widely regarded as outdated and no longer fit for purpose. It was agreed in the 1970s but based on UK legislation from the 1940s and some elements of educational practice date as far back as the turn of the century.

Updating the Law is a key priority for the Committee this States term and the public consultation provides an opportunity for the community to influence the development of the Committee's final proposals, which will then be debated by the States Assembly later this year.

The Committee has published two short animations seeking to provide an overview of the current law, why it needs to change and why it is so important for the delivery of education, and detailing its plans to introduce boards of governors to oversee States-maintained education settings. The animations can be viewed via the States of Guernsey's social media accounts and on the States' website at www.gov.gg/educationlaw.
