In common with all local authorities, Solihull Schools Forum was established as part of the requirements of the Education Act 2002. The principal requirement is for local authorities to consult their schools forums on a range of financial matters concerning schools’ budgets.

The Solihull Schools Forum fulfills its role through a number of workgroups. Decisions are made at full forum meetings which are held up to five times each year. Forum meetings are public meetings.

Membership runs from September each year and term of office is usually three years. It may be necessary to appoint new members at other times throughout the year if vacancies arise.

Eligible members will be invited to nominate themselves to join Forum each July, dependent on the number of current vacancies.
