Schools Forum

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

Membership is made up of representatives from LA maintained schools and academies. Representatives of other non-school organisations, such as nursery and 14-19 education providers, are also present. The forum meeting six times during each academic year.
