Essential Resources believes in empowering educators to teach to their full potential so that they can inspire a lifelong love of learning and help build an equable and kind world.
To achieve our aspirations, we support our superstars – the teachers and parents who influence and educate children today and the future generations. Our superstars are busy, smart and inspirational. We partner with expert educators, editors, designers and web developers to create excellent education solutions that help them be the best they can be.
Our resources provide teachers with the lesson plans, tools and strategies they need to make a difference, supporting students’ learning through each stage of primary education. Strongly grounded by what works in the classroom, our content scaffolds students to become analytical thinkers, problem solvers and idea generators whilst enjoying the process of learning.
