Scheme for Financing Schools

We have a scheme for financing schools, in accordance with government regulations and guidance issued by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE), and in consultation with schools and Slough Schools Forum.

The Scheme for Financing Schools defines the financial relationship between the authority and the maintained schools it funds. It has requirements that relate to financial management and associated issues binding upon the local authority and maintained schools.

Slough Schools Forum

The Forum is established in accordance with Section 47A of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 and The Schools Forums (England) Regulations 2002.

The Slough Schools Forum is a consultative and decision making forum concerned with maintained schools’, academies’ and education funding. Membership comprises Headteachers, Governors and other providers of education.
