Good - for what it is.


How well does it match the curriculum?

Reasonably: It’s good enough for the money, but needs some additional resources

Inconsistent coverage


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

Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented

Some good resources


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

Varies between subjects


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

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

The children can’t wait to use it, both at school and at home


How well does it support planning?

Reasonably: Mostly we can use it without an unreasonable amount of effort or additional resource requirement

We don’t really need planning, as such, as we use another resource for this


How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Brilliantly: We’d have very few reservations about using this extensively to support home learning

Really effective during lockdown. Didn’t need a lot of parental input


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

Reasonably: It represents about the same value for money as similar resources I’ve seen

About what you’d expect, compared to similar products
