DfE Buys ERA Licences for Schools


The DFE has announced that copyright licences such as the CLA and ERA licences have been procured through a central arrangement for 2014-2015 saving schools 6 million pounds.


Who does this apply to?

These arrangements apply to maintained schools in England and cover all primary and secondary schools in England, including academies, and all special schools and Pupil Referral Units. Nursery schools and Independent schools are not included.


Schools in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland should seek clarification from their Departments of Education.
