Most Helpful Reviews

SAM Learning

Ben Clarke, Teacher: loss of one star for not being able to set homeworks for the whole year group and get class reports
Emily, Teacher: SAM Learning has a wide range of topics, it is so useful for giving students homework on that extra practice that is so important. It helps reduce workload too, which is great!
Alice W-G, Second in Faculty (Mathematics): I use SAM Learning all the time and my students enjoy completing tasks on there.

Curriculum Maestro

Lindsey Wain, Deputy Head Teacher: I have used Cornerstones from its first launch. The product has been refined over time as it is driven by feedback from schools and teachers delivering the content. The company is also responsive to a school's needs.
Charlotte Gibbins, Headteacher: Maestro is a real time saver, particularly for leadership teams and subject leaders. There is a wealth of information and resources which can be used and adapted by creative skills teachers. The way the curriculum is mapped is excellent and was commented on in a very recent Ofsted inspection.
Kathy Wharton, Head of Primary: It increased initially as new protocols and systems were introduced. From experience I know it will reduce workload when embedded in practice.
