Schools
For the purpose of this sub-section, a school is any organisation even though we will use the term school throughout this sub-section.   There are two ways to subscribe to the OneStep CPD service as a school. The first in on a per-pupil basis. The second is on a per-user basis. The school may choose which way it wants to be charged. Free access to the service is not available for school users.
The school will be provided with a quote for access to the service. A quote can be obtained from this link: [INSERT LINK]. The school’s acceptance of this quote shall be deemed to be an offer on the school’s part to enter into an agreement with Twinkl. This offer shall only be deemed to have been accepted when the school is granted access to the service.
The school may pay the fee to access the service upon receipt of the quote or they may choose to be invoiced.
If they choose to be invoiced, the school will be issued with an invoice. The school must pay the invoice within 15 days of the date of the invoice; and in full and in cleared funds to a bank account nominated in writing by us, and time for payment shall be of the essence.
If the school fails to make any payment due to us by the due date for payment, then the school shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above HSBC's base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The school shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
A school subscription to the service can only be purchased directly from Twinkl. The minimum term of our school subscriptions is 12 months. The full fees are payable upfront at the beginning of the minimum term.
The prices are fixed for the 12 months and no refunds are available even if pupil numbers or user numbers decrease.
If a school has paid per user and wishes to add an extra user, they may do this and they will be charged the then current user fee. The fee will be charged on a pro-rata basis for the remainder of the term of the school’s subscription and the user will gain access to the service for the remainder of the subscription term.
All amounts payable by a school are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable from time to time (VAT). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made by Twinkl to the school, the school shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from us, pay to us such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the service at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the service.
The school shall pay all amounts due in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding except as required by law. We may, without limiting our other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to us by the school against any amount payable by us to the school.
In relation to any personal data entered by the school, the school entering the data is the co-controller of any personal data entered. The school is responsible for ensuring that is complies with its obligations as co-controller.
