Dudley Schools Forum

Education Grants Image

It has been a statutory requirement since 2003 that Local Authorities establish a Schools Forum for their area. 

The Dudley Schools Forum is a body compromising of representatives of maintained schools and academies and early years providers together with other local partners and stakeholders. 

The Forums role is both consultative and advisory.

The extent to which Schools Forums can scrutinise and challenge such proposals is an important aspect of their effectiveness.
