Deadline: 6th March 2023

Education Law Review

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture (Education) are looking for your views on their proposals for an Education Law.

The current Law commenced in 1970 but its roots are much older and many of the descriptions and wording in it are not relevant or appropriate for today’s education system. The review of the Education Law has considered what is needed in Guernsey and Alderney and how education legislation has been updated across other jurisdictions, particularly the other parts of the British Isles.

Education is looking for feedback in a questionnaire which highlights areas of change that might be proposed for the new Law. It focuses on those areas which might see the greatest change or those which would be of interest to the wider community rather than asking about every aspect of the Law.

Some terms and abbreviations are used as part of the questionnaire. Education has provided  a short definition/explanation of these to help ensure there is a common understanding. This list together with other information on the States website can be accessed clicking the button below.
