Education Minister Leighton Andrew introduced a bill that aims to strengthen school standards across Wales on 24 April 2012.
According to the minister the bill cuts down and bureaucracy and complexity.
The aim of the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Bill is to make it easier for schools to intervene and increase school improvement through the introduction of statutory guidance.
This is the first of its kind in Wales and the government hopes it will enable school organisation to make decisions at a local level.
The bill will ensure rights for parents to call meetings with school governing bodies and give local authorities more flexibility over the pricing of school meals.
The bill received cross party support across the chamber.
