ESN Annual Contract

All services offered through Education Services Nottingham (ESN) will be delivered under contractual agreements which set out the general terms and conditions for the services outlined in the overall offer.

The contractual agreement for all schools and academies is through the ESN Contract.  You do not need to sign a paper contract, once you send us your order we work on clarifying prices and will send you the contract along with pricing and invoicing schedule for your records.  Once you submit an annual order form or additional services order form you are agreeing to the terms and conditions in the ESN Contract.

The ESN Contract comes in two types:

  1. Annual Contracts For most of your annual services.  As so many schools and academies reorder the same services each year by being already filled in on the form it saves you time getting your order in.  If you wish to serve notice do so three months prior to you financial year end (1st January for schools and 1st June for academies)   
  2. Fixed term contracts Some services offer discounted rates for a three year commitment.  In these cases T&Cs remain the same however you may not serve notice without first paying back any discounts you received. Some services bundle in licenses or agreements with third parties or employ staff specifically to fulfill your contract.  Contractually you need to serve 6 month’s notice on all fixed term contracts and pay back any financial losses the services has incurred. Each service will be considered on an individual basis and will not necessarily incur a charge. The 2 and 3 year contracts are at a discounted rate, not a set rate for the period.
