Schools Forum

Our Schools' Forum, which represents the governors and headteachers of our schools.

The Government requires every local authority to set up a Schools' Forum. Its purpose is to provide strategic direction for the funding of schools in the local authority and support services in relation to new school funding arrangements covering:

  • the Dedicated Schools' Grant (DSG)
  • the Schools' Budget (centrally retained and Individual School Budget)
  • the Pupil Premium
  • Devolved Formula Capital
  • wider issues such as service contracts and service level agreements
