In School Programme – Booking Procedure

  • In order to give you a quote we require;
    • Number of classes per year group
    • Location of school site(s)
    • School timings (break, lunch etc.)
  • Following a confirmation of your booking we will organise a date for the delivery in school. Acceptance of this date acts as confirmation of your booking.

In School Programme – Cancellation Policy

  • If for any reason you wish to cancel the school delivery following the agreement of the date, we operate a no quibble cancellation if this is given in excess of 30 days prior to delivery.
  • For cancellations within the 30 days you will be charged the full amount. 

If you would like change the delivery date within 30 days of the agreed delivery date:

  • You will be charged a £50 administration fee.
  • The delivery must be rescheduled for either the same or following term of the original booking. 
  • You will be billed for the delivery in line with the original date.
  • If for any reason your booking must be moved to the following academic year (no more than one term following your original booking) you may be liable to an increased charge in line with the fees for the academic year in which it will be delivered.
  • The £50 administration will apply to any and all movements within 30 days of delivery. 

Referral Programme – Snap :  Share : Win

  • Offer: Introduce a new school to BigTalk Education’s Growing Up Safe or RSE :  Lessons for Life secondary programme and receive a further 10% contribution from BigTalk Education on your invoice or £60 worth of BigTalk Education resources.
  • In these Terms and Conditions the friend recommending BigTalk Education is deemed to be the REFERRER and the school referred to BigTalk Education as the NEW SCHOOL.
  • To qualify the NEW SCHOOL referred to BigTalk Education must be a school where BigTalk Education has not previously delivered to pupils.
  • The NEW SCHOOL must quote the name and school of the REFERRER in the initial contact with BigTalk Education, as any referrals made at a later stage may not be valid.
  • To qualify for a reward a REFERRER must have an active connection (e.g. employee, governor, parent) with a school that has an active booking for ‘in school’ RSE delivery with BigTalk Education. If the REFERRER’s school has not booked in for their next GUS or Lessons for Life sessions, the reward will be held until the next booking is received. Upon placing their next booking the school may claim the £60 worth of resources if this is their chosen reward. Normal booking Ts & Cs apply. Should for ANY reason the REFERRER’s school cancel their ‘in school’ delivery then school will be billed for the resources received. Therefore if resources are chosen as a reward, an email of authorisation must be received from a suitably qualified person within school to approve this.
  • The NEW SCHOOL must book a minimum of six lessons delivered by the BigTalk Education team for the REFERRER’s school to qualify for the reward.
  • The 10% Contribution from BigTalk Education is capped at £60 of value which ever is the lesser amount.
  • Only one REFERRER can be quoted by a NEW SCHOOL at the time of booking.
  • Not to be used in conjunction with LEA, pyramid or academy chain discounts or any other partnerships or offers.
  • There is no cap on the number of referrals from one school, however only one BigTalk Education contribution can be received per invoice for ‘in school’ delivery, therefore any subsequent rewards will only be given in resources, or alternatively 10% discount against staff training or pupil one to ones.
  • BigTalk Education reserve the right to withdraw or change this promotion at any time.
