School Funding

Schools Forum


The Government requires that each local authority (LA) maintain a Schools Forum. The forum will represent its schools' views on matters relating to the total Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). The DSG funds a range of responsibilities including:

  • delegated budgets to schools
  • provision of support for pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • out-county and independent SEN placements
  • funding for early years in private, voluntary and independent nurseries.

This service is part of our development to improve our website and can now be found on our new beta website.
