The Department for Education has produced a factsheet for maintained schools, academies and local authorities on copyright licensing in schools for 2014-15.

A number of organisations, including ERA, have now signed agreements with the Department for Education to licence schools centrally.
The Factsheet contains details of all the licences now purchased centrally, details of the activities covered as well as links to the individual bodies concerned. The Factsheet can be found at www.gov.uk/copyright-licences-information-for-schools.
A copy of the Factsheet has been distributed to Local Authorities to inform them of the scope of agreed central payments, but the sheet is also of interest to individual schools.
