How well does it match the curriculum?

Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected

My teachers find the videos really useful to teach them how to teach the skill.


How well does it support your school’s inclusion/diversity/equal opportunities policy?

Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented

They look at a wide range of artists and styles.


How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?

Reasonably: They do have some tips for support but a lot seems to be by outcome, based on how it's used in my school


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Well: Pupils generally enjoy using it and tend to welcome doing so

The children enjoy the lessons and have produced good work


How well supported is it by accompanying formative assessments?

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

The assessment is new and we've not used it in detail yet but it seems quite easy to use


How well does it support planning?

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

It is self contained but teachers must look at it before hand
