The Thurrock Schools Forum is a statutory body, regulated under the provisions of the Schools Forum Regulations which come into force on the 1st April 2010.
Membership of the Forum broadly represents the Schools population, with members being drawn from Head Teachers, Governors, Church Diocese, Early Years and the 14-19 Education sectors.
The primary role of the Schools Forum is to be the main consultative group for distribution of Schools Funding, including allocation of Specific grants and any changes to the Thurrock Scheme for Financing Schools.

This document sets out a description of the formulae operating to objectively allocate resources to all schools maintained by Thurrock Council.
Every year Thurrock Council is required to publish a budget statement displaying the total amount available to spend on Education Services for the financial year 1st April to 31st March. This statement covers planned expenditure within the Education Department and delegation of resources to individual schools. For comparative purposes, previous years' budget statements have been included.
After the end of each financial year (31st March) Thurrock Council is required to produce a statement showing details of the total spend for Education purposes during the year. For comparative purposes, previous years' outturn statements are included.
