Original consultation

We are seeking your views on draft regulations that will require each local authority (LA) to set up a database of all compulsory school age children in their area.

Consultation description

We are consulting on the Draft Children Act 2004 Database (Wales) Regulations 2020 and the Education (Information about Children in Independent Schools) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

The regulations will require:

  • each LA to establish and maintain a database to assist them in identifying children not on any maintained school’s roll, education other than at school (EOTAS) roll, or independent school roll, and not receiving a suitable education
  • local health boards to disclose to LAs non-clinical information about a child who is ordinarily a resident in that LA’s area
  • independent schools to disclose information regarding learners registered at their establishment to a LA
