Resources, advice and guidance

Our content is designed to address a variety of teaching and learning contexts. We have curated a range of useful resources from other organisations, making them easily accessible in one place through our search filter function. 

Safety and security is paramount. Please ensure any platforms or tools you use, whether new or old, comply with safeguarding guidance (see our overview here). If they store pupil data in any way (such as pupil logins, images or video, or other data) they must be school-sanctioned, even if you are the individual teacher signing up. If necessary, you should also ensure that your data protection officer has signed or put in place a data processing agreement with any third party acting as a data processor on behalf of the school (all reputable services will be able to comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR).
