Acceptable Use Policy

Top Teacher is designed to allow individual users to download from a large range of premium teaching resources for their own needs. Collectively, the resources have taken many thousands of hours to create. As such, we feel that it is a violation against the Website when the terms and conditions of Top Teacher are not adhered to – and we take it very seriously.

Top Teacher considers that no user would reasonably need to download more than 100 resources each month and accounts exceeding this download level are subject to review.

Any material or information downloaded from this Website is subject to Copyright Terms. You may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit or distribute, by any means or in any manner, any material or information downloaded from this Website without prior written authorisation from a director of Top Teacher.
