Education and Adoption Act 2016 (Get in on the Act)

An introduction to the Act and summary of the main issues on which the Local Government Association (LGA) lobbied.


The Education and Adoption Act 2016 takes forward government commitments intended to improve education and adoption services. It will enable the Government to intervene in schools deemed to be coasting, as well as in failing schools. Measures in the Act allow the Government to require local authorities to make arrangements for their adoption functions to be carried out by another adoption agency, allowing for regional approaches.

This publication aims to provide readers with an introduction to the Act and summarises the main issues on which the Local Government Association (LGA) campaigned.
