What the forum does

The main functions of the schools forum are:

  • to be consulted on the funding formula
  • to be consulted on issues in connection with the schools budget
  • to be consulted on service contracts where the costs will be met from the schools budget
  • to determine a range of financial and budget matters affecting schools.

The forum approves proposals for the Secretary of State in the following areas:

  • changes to the operation of the Minimum Funding Guarantee
  • the retention and levels of funding for Combined Services, growth in pupil numbers, premature retirement and redundancy costs, admissions and the cost of the Carbon Reduction Commitment
  • changes to the Authority's Scheme for Financing Schools
  • the central retention (de-delegation) of budgets for matters delegated to schools. (This applies only to maintained mainstream schools and decision-making is restricted to their representatives.)
