  • At Lutley Primary School we wanted to enable our children to be able to search for safe content from reliable sources. We wanted to make sure that they remained safe when searching topics on the internet.

  • When we were looking for a suitable resource, Britannica’s differentiated learning stood out for us, as well as the huge range of content that is available. Also, the ease of access is a great benefit for us, and the cost was very reasonable.

  • We use it to spark questions and students can take ownership of their work. The layout is so friendly; the students like it more than traditional search engines. They like that they have safe information that is useful.
