Ignore it. They have no legal right to enter your school or audit you without a court order. Do not let them onto your premises or invite them in or they do get some legal precedence to audit you, and just like a witch finder of old they need to find something to keep them in pocket!
They are just using FUD tactics to get themselves in the door, thats all.

Ignore it, simple as that.
I made the mistake of answering one of their junk emails once, and simply received more!

Although what the e-mail says is true, that it is a business/school responsibility to ensure the software your business/school runs is licensed, I can't imagine who in their right mind would pay for such a service. It is cleverly worded, designed to worry people so they comply.
I would recommend as a matter of good practice, to keep a folder documenting licensing for the applications/services your site uses and to keep an up-to-date inventory of computer hardware and resources.
