FOIA Schedule I includes:
- 52 - The governing body of (a) a maintained school, as defined by section 20(7) of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998
That Act defines maintained schools as being:
- community schools
- foundation schools
- voluntary schools:
- voluntary aided schools
- voluntary controlled schools
- community special schools
- foundation special schools
Section 19 of the Education Act 2002 incorporates governing bodies for all maintained schools, and schedule 1 to that Act sets out various basic parameters of their incorporation (in particular their names).
Where the Secretary of State is satisfied that a maintained school had selective admission arrangements at the beginning of the 1997-98 school year, he may by order designate the school as a grammar school (section 104, School Standards and Framework Act 1998). This means that Grammar Schools are a special type of maintained school.
