Birmingham Schools Forum

This page is known as: www.birmingham.gov.uk/schools-forum

The Birmingham Schools Forum is a body comprising representatives of maintained schools, academies, and early years providers within the Birmingham City Council area, together with other local partners and stakeholders. The arrangements for selection of representatives are set out in the constitution which can be found below.

The role of the Schools Forum is to advise the Council on matters affecting schools funding – principally the allocation of Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG), and the local Fair Funding Formulae which distribute budgets to schools, early years providers and other maintained education settings.

The Schools Forum meets, on average, twice per school term and these meetings are open to the public.

Date of the next meeting is listed below:

DATE: Thursday October 2014
TIME: 2pm-4pm
LOCATION: Committee Room C, Council House Extension, Margaret Street
