A Schools Forum is a statutory body prescribed by regulations. Its membership comprises Headteachers, Governors and others. It is independent of the Authority but works closely with officers. Its role has evolved since it was first established in 2002 with the Forum now having greater decision making powers. The Forum represents the views of schools with respect to the use of the Direct Schools Grant (DSG) and funding of schools in the area.
