Primary academy and free school 2017-18 FFT Aspire subscriptions

The Schools Forum decided in its meeting on 18 January 2017 to continue de-delegation from the Primary Phase to purchase FFT Aspire licences for all maintained Primary Schools for the 2017-18 financial year.

Recognising the substantial saving that collective purchase brings, the Local Authority would like to offer Primary Academy/Free Schools that wish to use FFT Aspire in 2017-18 the opportunity to purchase a subscription at a discounted rate through the Local Authority.

The cost of purchasing a 2017-18 FFT Aspire subscription for the Primary phase through the Local Authority is charged at £0.55 per pupil (based on the Autumn school census NOR).  Purchasing an FFT Aspire subscription via the Local Authority represents a saving of approximately 45% compared to purchasing directly with FFT.

Primary Academies/Free Schools that wish to purchase via the Local Authority must confirm by email to IMT-Traded@bradford.gov.uk by Friday 31 March 2017.  Primary Academies/Free Schools that do not confirm that they wish to purchase an FFT Aspire licence through the Local Authority, but still wish to access FFT Aspire after 1 April 2017, will need to purchase their licence directly from FFT at a substantially higher cost.

All LA maintained Primary Schools will automatically continue to be able to access FFT Aspire after 1 April 2017, therefore no further action is required by these schools.
