Schools are reminded that, as per the recent circular PP/ASC/008/18 dated 8th March, they need to make a choice from the following tariff by 16th March:-
- PAYG – on this tariff, the school pays 48p per pupil per annum subscription and then pays for any SMS units they use at 3.5p per unit.
- Unlimited – on this tariff, the school pays 48p per pupil per annum subscription and then pays £1.99 per pupil per annum for unlimited text usage. There is a ‘Fair Usage policy’ (75 SMS text units per pupil) for the Unlimited tariff. There are no additional costs for text usage above these payments, if within the fair usage policy.
- High Usage – on this tariff, schools pay the same as on the Unlimited tariff (48p + £1.99 per pupil per annum) but they receive an allowance of 75 text units per pupil per annum. Once they exceed that allowance they then pay for the text units in excess of their allowance at the standard rate of 3.5p per text unit. This is still a very good deal for schools as they are paying 2.65p per text unit instead of 3.5p for the first 75 text units per pupil, saving them some 64p per pupil on those 75 units.
