General 5: Cold Calls from Companies re. Support / Subscription

We are aware schools are currently being targeted by companies trying to get them to support / subscribe to their publications.

Those we have been informed about are ‘The Burning Issue’ (Fire Service) and ‘Billboard’ (Police Authority). Although both magazines are legitimate schools may be unhappy about the approach.

Remember school contact details and information is publically available through numerous websites and before any commitment is made, a school should be considering whether value for money is being obtained through payment of the publications.

Schools need to be wary of approaches such as these and any individual taking the call should try to avoid committing the School to expenditure where value for money will not be obtained.
