Terms of use

Acceptable usage


It is your sole responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and it is a violation of the terms and conditions for you to share it with others. Where you have another colleague who wishes to use the resources we request that you ask them to sign up too. This is important as it allows us to:

  • Effectively monitor true usage of the resources;
  • Support better understanding of the needs of users;
  • Better develop future resources across the key stages;
  • Report effectively to the relevant authority who has subsidised/funded the resource (where appropriate) and secure continued funding.
We also support parent requests for paid subscription resources where the school will be issued with a unique code to accommodate home learning. If you use a shared device to access the resources it is your responsibility to ensure you log out at the end of every session. It is a violation of the licence agreement for you to share/distribute/reproduce the resources with others in any form. You must not alter the resources in any way. If you have any suggestions of how we can adapt/amend the resources to support you or others better then please let us know.
