For the Licence year commencing 1 April 2017

(a) the annual tariff for students in Primary schools (including Preparatory schools, special schools, pupil referral units and non-maintained special schools) will be 45p per student; and

Current Schools Agreements

ERA has negotiated abated licence fees with umbrella organisations representing large numbers of educational establishments. As a result some educational establishments may be covered by one centrally-held blanket licence.
