How well does it match the curriculum?

Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected

Coverage on the website seems inline with Nat Curr expectations.


How well does it support adaptation for different groups of pupils?

Well: A large majority of resources are suitably differentiated for pupils

Good variety of levels of work to do.


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Reasonably: We can’t use it too often or for too long

Sometimes appears rather wordy and repetitive


How well supported is it by any included formative assessments?

Well: We could (or do) use it for monitoring individual pupil progress


How well does it support planning?

Well: It’s fairly self-contained and can be used with minimal preparation

Lots of relevant material to save time.


How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Well: Pupils could be expected to use this at home or independently, with a minimum amount of support or additional resources

Easily adapted to home learning.


How would you rate it for value for money compared to similar resources?

Brilliantly: It’s possibly the best value for money of any similar resources I’ve seen

Good monthly price for access to all materials.


Would you recommend it to a colleague in a similar school to yours? 9/11
