The content on this website is free for anyone to use and will always remain free simply because I fundamentally believe in the principles of comprehensive, free education.
Sadly, however, it has come to light recently that a number of the resources available here (and also some older materials from our KS3 provision) have been uploaded, used and claimed by other individuals as their own.
That's not ok.
There is one key thing to note here - you can only do this if you attribute us/me/this site - in other words, acknowledge that these resources are not your own.
You also cannot sell our resources or derivatives of my resources for profit. This goes against all of my principles.
The reason for this is quality control. I take great pride in the standard of my work and I constantly review and update these resources as I find things I'm not happy with, as I learn from experience and as I simply think things need to be refreshed or changed. For exmaple, I'm practically re-writing unit 2 of the GCSE as we speak becuase I don't think it's good enough. You will be able to get these resources for free as usual.
If you upload our resources, claim them as your own or share them as your own then the people you share with are getting a poor experience. They do not know the origin of your files, nor will they benefit from the constant improvements we make. To see comments on websites from teachers praising these lessons as "outstanding" actually makes me sad - they're not outstanding and that's why we've since moved on from delivering them in that form.
Bottom line - please don't give your students a second rate experience, please don't steal resources and claim them as your own.
