As a result of increased membership and savings and efficiencies, the service has run under budget again this year despite enhancements made to the network and service support. Therefore, in the true spirit of a co-operative, we are now in a position to confirm that a ‘cashback dividend’ will be paid to all of those schools who signed up to a 2012/13 HICS contract.
Headteachers/Principals will receive a letter in the coming week with the details. The refunds have been calculated in proportion to the prices charged to individual schools and range from £144.35 for our smallest school through to £1,377.77 for the largest. (So I guess that’s between a Kindle Fire and 3 iPads!)
Prices for next year are still being finalised … there will be another announcement about that soon.
