Espresso is a cross-curricular resource for primary schools which covers all year groups and subjects as well as whole-school initiatives such as SEAL and Healthy Schools. Resources include video clips, audio files, interactive challenges, pictures, worksheets, independent learning paths and learning reviews, as well as additional features which help teachers with their planning. New content is added each week along with specially recorded topical news bulletins for each Key Stage. All teachers in subscribing schools can access the whole of Espresso from home for planning purposes, and schools can add pupil home access to their subscription for an additional fee.
