Now kinder to your photocopier – July 2019

Following customer feedback, we’re working hard to update the headers of our worksheets so that they don’t require so much ink to print. So far we’ve updated over 500 Activate 1 files and more will be updated in the autumn.

Plus, we’ve created a document explaining the progression model which informs all our KS3 and GCSE resources, including Activate. You can find it under the Assessment tab.
