(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Individual Pupils' Achievements) (Information) (Wales) Regulations 1997 so as to remove provisions relating to tests known as "standard task assessments"  -  see regulation 2(1)  -  (3), (5)  -  (6) and (8). Those tests used to be administered to 7 year old pupils at the end of Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum, but were abolished with effect from 2002  -  see the Education (National Curriculum) (Assessment Arrangements for English, Welsh, Mathematics and Science) (Key Stage 1) (Wales) Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/45 (W.4)). They also remove a reference to grant-maintained and grant-maintained special schools (which no longer exist) and substitute for a reference to "the Welsh Office" a reference to "the National Assembly for Wales"  -  see regulations 2(4) and (7).
