Licensing for Schools

The Copyright and Schools website has been produced by a group of licensing bodies that provide licences for the use of copyright material in the schools sector. The website has been set up to help schools navigate copyright licensing and understand how copyright material can be used within a school – providing accessible, relevant and up-to-date information to support the curricular and extracurricular use of copyright content.

Blanket licensing arrangements allow schools to use copyright works from an extensive repertoire, under the terms of a licence rather than having to request permission from rightsholders every time a work is used. Each organisation has negotiated a number of centralised agreements in order to streamline the licensing process for schools, where possible.
