Schools' forum

Every council has a schools’ forum, that a Local education authority (LEA) has to consult with on all financial matters affecting schools.

The forum takes decisions regarding:

  • Management of the schools' budget
  • Agreement of central expenditure limits
  • Changes to budget share formulae
  • Amendments to the scheme for financing schools
  • Contractual arrangements affecting schools.

The constitution of the forum comprises elected members, head teachers, governors and the professional associations.
