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.

Information for members includes dates of meetings, Forum minutes and agendas, current membership, constitution, Decision Sheets, Budget Fact Sheets, Training and Literature

Consultation documents for National Funding Formula are now available to view under DfE Related heading.

A summary of the outcomes of the Forum meeting on 20th June 2017 is documented under Latest News.

The DfE updated their Operational and Good Practice Guidance on 25th March - this is available to view under DfE Related heading
