The site offers resources for teachers as well as families and students in multiple subject areas including language arts, fine arts, math, science, and social studies. Resources are also available for foreign languages, careers, and religions. Content is readable online for many topics, but in others, the resources primarily consist of video clips which are not viewable when browsing from the U.S. (a K12PS team member was able to view the video clips when browsing under a VPN that allowed selection of the United Kingdom as a server location). The site is easy to navigate and search, with options to find information by subject, topic and age ranges (ages 3 to 16+). Note that some of the sections on the site are organized by school level names in the U.K. countries, but there is also information on age ranges so it is not difficult to find age-appropriate content.
