Schools Forum

The Redbridge Schools Forum is a statutory body required by the Schools Forum Regulations, set by the Department for Education. Comprising the head teacher and governing body representatives from the primary, secondary and special school sectors and non-representatives, their responsibilities include agreeing the 'Scheme for Financing Schools' (PDF 768KB) and being consulted on funding changes in schools.

Letting Schools Premises

Guidance on 'Letting School Premises' has been made available to all Redbridge schools, including a model policy document.

Schools are advised to use their discretion in applying this model policy and its procedures to their settings. Where a school feels they could benefit from adopting this policy, the document and appendices should be adapted and amended to appropriately reflect specific arrangements and requirements of individual schools.
