Professionally planned and thoughtful resource

Meets all the requirements of the national curriculum

Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented

Good range of diversity


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

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

Good ideas for support and challenge


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

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

Lessons are well thought through


How well supported is it by accompanying formative assessments?

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

Clear objectives make AFL simple


How well does it support planning?

Brilliantly: It has everything you could need and is straightforward to use with classes

Plans are provided and need only adapting to class contact, the local area study needs most resourcing but this is bound to happen


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

Some suggestions for this


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

Great value for money
