The Schools Forum is a statutory body that provides a channel of communication between the local authority and schools. It serves as a mechanism for consultation on school funding.

It is made up of:

  • school members
  • non-school members
  • other attendees and observers – including the Cabinet member for Education and officers of the Council

School membership is representative and proportionate to pupil numbers in the relevant sector. Non-school membership includes 16 to 19 and Early Years provision.

Meetings will be held on the following dates:

  • 27 September 2023

All meetings take place remotely using Microsoft Teams, and unless otherwise stated, begin at 2pm. Non-members are welcome to attend these meetings as observers.
