The forum is made up of representatives from schools and academies

Role of the forum

The forum acts in a consultative role for:

  • changes to the local funding formula (the local authority makes the final decision)
  • proposed changes to the operation of the minimum funding guarantee
  • changes to or new contracts affecting schools (eg school meals)
  • arrangements for pupils with special educational needs, in pupil referral units and in early years provision

The forum decides:

  • how much funding may be retained by the local authority within the dedicated schools grant (eg for providing an admissions service or providing additional funding for growing schools)
  • any proposed carry forward of deficits on central spend from one year to the next
  • proposals to de-delegate funding from maintained primary and secondary schools (eg for staff supply cover, insurance, behaviour support)
  • changes to the scheme of financial management
