Can I print school licenced products?
The main purpose of school licences is to allow multiple (or all) staff at a school to view the resources on their devices, whether a computer, tablet or phone. Purchasing a school licence does allow the resources to be printed, however the standard copyright guidelines still apply, which limits reproduction to 10% per person per year.
