Committee details

Schools' Forum

Purpose of committee

The Schools' Forum is a partnership body linking the Local Authority and the school community in making decisions about school funding and roles and responsibilities. It comprises stakeholders of the school community, including head teachers and governors or their nominated representatives.

Schools Forums were established by the Education Act 2002, as a statutory consultative body to support local authorities on matters relating to school budgets. The Schools' Forum plays a critical role in representing the views of all the schools, providers of 16 - 19 and early education within the area.
