How well does it match the curriculum?
Brilliantly: There is more content (eg support / extension activities) than we expected
I love how it extends artistic knowledge and skills
How well does it support your school’s inclusion/diversity/equal opportunities policy?
Brilliantly: The content stands out as being particularly positive in this regard and would be welcome in any school like mine
A wide range of artists is covered from a diverse range of artwork
How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?
Brilliantly: There is a wide enough range of resources to provide a good range of options for all pupils
Support for less able and challenge for more able is excellent
How well does it engage and motivate pupils?
Brilliantly: Pupils love using and are excited when they know they are going to do so
All children have shown an increase in confidence and enjoyment
How well supported is it by accompanying formative assessments?
Brilliantly: We could (or do) use it for monitoring pupils or classes, for gap analysis or to inform intervention strategies
How well does it support planning?
Brilliantly: It has everything you could need and is straightforward to use with classes
The teacher resources are perfect for ensuring sound subject knowledge before teaching the lesson
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
This covers all we need and has improved both teacher and student confidence
