Schools

How does CCLI work with schools?

Many schools in the UK are required by law to hold a daily act of collective worship. Whether licensed directly with CCLI, or through the UK Government’s national licence provision for state-funded schools in England, CCLI simplifies the legal reproduction of many of the hymns and worship songs popular in assemblies.

What can CCLI provide for my school? Permission is required to produce song sheets, copy sheet music or project song words onto a big screen for pupils to sing. CCLI’s licences provide that permission on behalf of many of the publishers whose songs are commonly used in assemblies, easing the cost and administrative burden of copyright on schools. Through SongSelect®, CCLI makes it easier to discover new songs and access authorised lyrics and sheet music downloads.

Many schools are not aware that the Schools Printed Music Licence (SPML) currently provided by the CLA does not cover the use of songs in assemblies and during times of collective worship. CCLI’s licences fill this gap, permitting the fair and legal use of songs in this context whilst ensuring songwriters and rights holders are fairly paid for the use of their work. The law is clear on copyright. CCLI helps ensure your school is, too.
