"Excellent value for money, signed up for a reduced rate trial with the intention of getting SATS papers and cancelling before end of trial but will definitely be staying on and paying the subscription which is also very good value for what you receive."

"I found the worksheets colourful but would rather the answers weren't on the bottom of each page, upside down. An answer sheet would be better."

"I have been a member of the School Run for a number of years and recommend them to all my student's parents. It is absolutely superb. The only thing I would like to see differently is that the subjects are broken down into different elements. I..e. for maths, data handling, fractions etc and for English, comprehension, punctuation etc.
Overall I would be lost without School Run"

Hi there. I just spotted your feedback on TheSchoolRun on SafeBuy. Thank you so much. You mentioned however that you wanted to see subjects broken down into different elements. We do have this. If you hover over the top navigation bar it will drop down and you'll see all the sub-categories for each area (ie under maths you'll see addition, subtraction, division etc.) Each of these sub-categories has its own category page where you can easily navigate to all the relevant articles, worksheets (which you can further filter by School Year), games etc. If you need any further help finding resources, please do email email@example.com
"materials are WAY too easy and no good for my son. VERY VERY annoyed re the auto payment for the 6 month sub when I was not looking and was away from my mail for a few days since I did NOT want to proceed with the membership (have already sent mail for refund and cancellation). Unpleasant buying experience (dishonest and sneaky). Will not continue or recommend."

Thanks for your feedback and I just wanted to address the issues you raise. If the worksheets for your child's year are too easy, you can of course try him with worksheets from the year above. Your subscription gives you access to all the resources for every year of primary school, so you can help a child who needs to review a topic they've already learned by going back to the previous year's resources, or you can help a child who is ready to be challenged by exploring the resources for the year above. Secondly, we do make it very clear that your subscription continues automatically after your trial if you don't cancel. We don't hide this in the terms and conditions, it's written clearly on the page where you sign up, there are reminders in subsequent emails you receive during your trial, and the date your full subscription starts is written clearly on the email you receive when your payment is made. We try really hard to ensure that subscribers are really clear about the terms they are signing up for, but we will of course continue to review this area as we want all subscribers to feel confident in the service. Also, I'm sure that if you emailed us just after the subscription payment was taken to say you hadn't intended for your subscription to continue, we would have immediately cancelled your account and refunded the amount. If this hasn't happened yet, please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
