Strategic Issue: Funding
Schools Forum is a statutory forum through which consultation must be undertaken in relation to the local distribution of school funding.
The Forum consults and advises schools on the following:
- Changes to the local funding formula
- Changes in new contracts affecting schools, i.e. school meals
- Pupil Premium
- Administrative arrangements for the allocation of central government grants paid to schools via the local authority
