Thanks for that but none of the sites are actually YHGfL.

I've tried to find a statement from your GfL but it appears there isn't one.
I think the joint concern over liability, and issues which might hinder the ongoing legal process are the main reason for the lack of statement - as well as the reason you won't get many of us coming out with the actual reason here.
Search Google and read the TES forums - the majority of post reflect the facts included in the letter sent from Cornwall LA which I refered to earlier.

Has Sparklebox gone away? - Early years - TES Connect
The last few posts with the pictures are interesting...

Thanks, I have seen a number of letters sent to school, from my LA stating YHGfL's "position" just thought that there may be a newer one as the posts here indicated such.

I wouldn't bother discussing this, some memebers get upset whilst the mods delete your posts.... even if you are merley trying to help.

Thats a little harsh tbh. Russdev hid the posts then as it was a copy and paste which means we are *technically* publishing it thus leading to us have to deal with complaints. It was fair to hide the posts until some sort of public domain information came out and even now its not fully publicised/clear. The user who responded to you simply asking you if you were sure you were allowed to post it was not having a go at you, they were just asking....

NEW Electronic letter <---- This can be found by doing a google search and the information contained within is already within the public domain.

I wouldn't (not that I use them!), but at least one teacher I spoke to would and some (though I did see one who was appalled that most of the others were desperately downloading everything they could) on the TES site would.

I've decided to let a couple of my schools know who use it more heavily to "expect it to be closed down in the near future pending a police investigation".
In the meantime, short of chancing luck with various google hits, I'd like to be able to present some alternatives. Other than primaryresources.co.uk and goodmorningchildren.co.uk does anyone else have some useful sites?

Would it be too much to ask for Ed Balls and his department to make a statement on this?
Still seems to be just Broadband providers/LEAs that are having to take their own actions, whereby this clearly needs addressing at a higher level. If for nothing else but a consistent approach.

We have received a statement from SWGfL advising us of the situation and asking us to think seriously about using Sparklebox. It is unblocked in both my schools and I need to speak to SMT about it
