Monetisation and Affiliate Links Disclosure

Honesty and transparency are central to the way I work, and it is important that my readers and fellow members of the education community understand how I make money via this website. Moreover, by UK law, bloggers must disclose whenever there is a financial interest of bias related to a recommendation or whenever a blogger’s opinion may be financially motivated in any way. has been running in some form or another since 2013; for over a decade I have freely shared my resources and ramblings, and I intend to continue this open exchange of ideas for the benefit of teachers and their students. The Amplify guest blogging initiative, and The Reading List Project are just some of the additional things which have grown out of my work.

Running a website of this complexity, with this range of services, incurs a cost: web hosting, tech support, admin time and plug-ins, to name a few.

My paid CPD content began to grow during the Coronavirus pandemic (my maternity leave project!), and I continue to donate a proportion of the profits to charities focused on improving the lives of young people. Find out more about our charitable work here.

There are some affiliate links to products and services on this website. This means that I will earn a small commission if you decide to purchase the linked product, or other qualifying purchases as part of the Amazon Associate program.

I specifically note at the top of a post or page when affiliate links are present, but for disclosure purposes, assume that any link you click on is an affiliate link.
