Element 1 – Reports and Perspective Lite Analysis

As a non-profit public body, we have always worked hard to keep our prices affordable for schools.  We also only ever seek to recoup the costs incurred in delivering our services to you. However, having reviewed the prices this year, against the backdrop of increasing overheads, we have had to take the decision to increase the cost of our reporting element.

  • infant and junior: per pupil £1.10, base per school £120 - (£617 cap)
  • primary: per pupil £1.10, base per school £120 - (£744 cap)
  • secondary: per pupil  £1.10, base per school £240 - (£1233 cap)
  • all-through: per pupil £1.10, base per school £300 - (£1542 cap)

Pupil numbers are calculated from the October 2022 school census.

Element 2 – FFT Aspire

FFT have increased both their direct school charges and all charges to local authorities by approximately 10% in line with inflation. In order to cover costs, we have reflected these increases in our charges below. However, we are still able to offer all schools a 25% discount on the per pupil cost compared to subscribing direct with FFT.

  • infant: per pupil £1.24, Base per school £110
  • primary and junior: per pupil £1.24, base per school £110
  • secondary and all-through: per pupil £0.83, base per school £660

Pupil numbers are calculated from the October 2022 school census and are based on year groups 1 to 13.
