The government has no plans to update the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 2006 to enable officers of local authorities to inspect and take copies of the admission and attendance registers of academy schools in their areas.

The department intends on publishing a review of the amendments to the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 2006 as amended later this year.

The amendments that will be reviewed include regulation 5 which covers the contents of the admission register, regulation 8 which covers deletion from the admission register, and regulation 12 which covers information to be provided to the local authority.

The regulations apply to all schools in England.
