    Spelling Curriculum Statement Spelling at Captain Webb ​ Learning to spell has strong links with reading and writing. In reading, the children’s knowledge of the relationship between letters and sounds sets the foundations for them as spellers. Spelling is also a significant aspect of the writing element within the curriculum. If we want children to become confident writers, a strong understanding of spelling and spelling patterns is crucial. As stated in the National Curriculum (2014), it states that ‘Writing down ideas fluently depends on effective transcription: that is, on spelling quickly and accurately through knowing the relationship between sounds and letters (phonics) and understanding the morphology (word structure) and orthography (spelling structure) of words.’ At Captain Webb, we have adopted a whole-school approach to spelling that builds as the children move through the school. Read Write Inc Spelling In years Reception and Year 1 spelling is taught through RWI Phonics. The children in years 2 to 6 have daily spelling sessions which follow the Read Write Inc spelling programme. This programme follows on from the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme with the aim of getting every child to spell effortlessly. It is a standalone programme that has been designed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. . There is a daily teacher led spelling session of around 15–20 minutes. Children are assessed during the programme. There are Practice Tests which assess children’s spelling progress using the same format as the statutory assessments in England. This allows us to track individual children’s progress and identify units, words or concepts which we will need to re-teach. How does this programme support your child in learning to spell? ​ RWInc Spelling is an interactive programme which teaches spellings in a fun and engaging way. Each unit is introduced with a short video. It helps children to learn spellings with common patterns and uses rules in order to help them recall spellings as well as teaching exceptions to these rules. A short video to show RWI Spellings in practice. ​ Daily Sessions consist of: Speed spell which tests children’s knowledge of words from previous units; Spelling Zone with an online introduction to the unit and rules and spelling patterns to be taught that week Dots and Dashes where children count phonemes and the recorded graphemes Rapid Recap of prior learning Word changes –by adding beginnings or endings to words (prefixes and suffixes) Words to Log and learn which helps children to log and learn new or unfamiliar words focusing on spelling patterns and rules. Rules are reviewed and practised through each unit until children can apply the rules in their own writing. Team teach and Four-in-a-row which help children assess their own progress; Jumping red/orange words which tests children’s knowledge of red and orange words (words from the word lists in the National Curriculum in England many of which are not able to be spelt by using sounds- these are often called the common exception , tricky words or High Frequency words). Challenge dictation sentences are available to challenge children to use new spellings. ​ Below, you will find the words banks for each unit of the spelling programme so you can print these and look at them at home with your child. Your child's class teacher will be able to let you know which spelling list they are currently working on at school. ​ Year 2 - Spelling Word Banks Read More Year 3 - Spelling Word Banks Read More Read More Year 4 - Spelling Word Banks Read More Year 5 - Spelling Word Banks Read More Year 6 - Spelling Word Banks Handy Tips for Supporting Your Child with Spelling ​ Practise spelling common exception words regularly. (Known as Red and Orange words) Revisit spellings from previous weeks. Ask your child to explain the rule for the week and get them to give you example words so that you can build up a word bank that can be referred to frequently. Make a note of the high frequency words which you notice your child is spelling wrong (remember that these are quite often RED WORDS and that you ‘Can’t fred a red!’) Play homophone games where you give them a word like right/write and they write you both spellings and show you on the sounds chart which graphemes they would choose to spell them right! Make sure they know which one is which! Play hold a sentence dictation where you give the child a short sentence with one of their spellings in which will help them to understand the meaning of the word and spell and punctuate correctly. Supporting Your Child’s Spelling at Home ​ To help you to support your children at home with their spellings on a weekly basis, the children will be given 6-8 spellings from the unit they are currently on which will follow a set pattern. They will be tested on these at the end of the week. In addition to these your child will also be given 6 red or orange words to learn from the National Curriculum word lists which are words the children are expected to know for their age range.

    Безопасность в Интернете Safer Internet Day 2023 This year we once again took part in Safer Internet Day! Our teachers made sure we had space to talk about what devices we use to access the internet, what we do when we are online, what we like about using the internet and what our worries are. We recorded our thoughts and added them to the Safer Internet Day ‘Video Wall’ where industry leaders and online safety experts will listen to our voices! Click here to watch the videos on what each class did for Safer Internet Day Наши дети сейчас живут в «глобальной деревне», и нам важно работать вместе, чтобы обеспечить нашим детям безопасность как в реальном мире, так и в Интернете. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Взаимодействие с другими людьми Как мы обеспечиваем безопасность детей в Интернете Взаимодействие с другими людьми В начальной школе капитана Уэбба дети узнают, как оставаться в безопасности в сети, зная о своем поведении (собственном поведении в сети), зная, что представляет собой подходящий контент и как его найти, а также о рисках контакта как со знакомыми, так и с людьми, которых они не знаю. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Интернет-безопасность связана с каждым разделом нашей учебной программы по вычислительной технике (см. Ниже). Мы блокируем целую неделю тематической работы для детей, чтобы они узнали о возрастных аспектах онлайн-безопасности во время «Недели безопасного Интернета», а школу посещают несколько сторонних агентств (таких как NSPCC, Google и местная полиция), чтобы узнать о текущих событиях. проблемы онлайн-безопасности. Наш Студенческий совет играет активную роль в обсуждениях и принятии решений по всем аспектам безопасности, включая безопасность в Интернете. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Мы играем активную роль с родителями, регулярно встречаясь со всеми, кто может беспокоиться о безопасности своего ребенка в Интернете. Если у вас есть какие-либо опасения по поводу безопасности в Интернете, не стесняйтесь связаться с одним из наших экспертов по безопасности в Интернете.

Попросите их научить вас пользоваться любыми приложениями, которыми вы никогда не пользовались. Хранение компьютера в семейной комнате означает, что вы можете поделиться опытом своего ребенка в сети - и что они с меньшей вероятностью будут действовать ненадлежащим образом (например, через веб-камеру). Помогите своим детям понять, что они никогда не должны сообщать личные данные друзьям в сети - личная информация включает их идентификатор в мессенджере, адрес электронной почты, номер мобильного телефона и любые фотографии себя, своей семьи или друзей. Если ваш ребенок публикует изображение или видео в Интернете, любой может изменить его или поделиться им. Напомните им, что на их изображения может смотреть кто угодно, и однажды это сможет сделать будущий работодатель! Если ваш ребенок получает спам / нежелательную электронную почту и текстовые сообщения, напомните ему, что нельзя им верить, отвечайте на них или используйте их. Вашему ребенку не рекомендуется открывать файлы от людей, которых он не знает. Они не будут знать, что в них содержится - это может быть вирус или, что еще хуже, несоответствующее изображение или фильм. Помогите своему ребенку понять, что некоторые люди врут в сети, и поэтому лучше держать друзей в сети онлайн. Им никогда не следует встречаться с незнакомцами без взрослого, которому они доверяют. Всегда держите общение открытым, чтобы ребенок знал, что никогда не поздно сказать кому-нибудь, если что-то заставляет его чувствовать себя некомфортно. Научите молодых людей, как заблокировать кого-либо в сети и как сообщить о них, если они чувствуют себя некомфортно. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Полезные сайты Вы можете найти эти веб-сайты полезными, если хотите узнать больше о безопасности в Интернете: - Центр эксплуатации детей и защиты в Интернете (CEOP) занимается искоренением сексуального насилия над детьми. Это правительственное агентство, которое участвует в полицейской деятельности Великобритании и занимается отслеживанием и привлечением к ответственности правонарушителей напрямую или в партнерстве с местными и международными силами. - Центр эксплуатации детей и защиты в Интернете (CEOP) создал собственный образовательный веб-сайт, который был разработан и написан специально для детей, молодежи, учителей, родителей и опекунов. - Kidsmart - это отмеченный наградами веб-сайт по безопасности в Интернете для родителей и тех, кто работает с детьми. Он был разработан детской интернет-благотворительной организацией Childnet International и содержит отличную информацию о многих технологиях, используемых детьми, а также рекомендации о том, как «оставаться в безопасности» в Интернете. - Vodafone разработал этот веб-сайт совместно с mumsnet. Он очень доступен и содержит информацию и рекомендации для родителей о понимании цифрового мира своего ребенка и о том, как принимать более активное участие. Есть даже онлайн-тест, чтобы узнать, как много вы знаете! Physical Security Systems we have in place In addition to teaching our children how to stay safe online we have installed, on our internet and IT systems, several security systems to block and filter out any inappropriate content. The following are some of the in-built security protection systems put in place, on our behalf by T&W: 1. Password management: This is critical, as this is where we all need to play our part. Passwords can be hacked easily if they do not have a good level of complexity, so to help protect your data we use a good, complex passwords. We never share password or leave them lying around. 2. Email protection – All emails go through a filtering system (Sophos) to ensure they do not contain a virus or from a known phishing source. Sophos is a tool that checks the content of the email very quickly and will let us know if it is safe to open. 3. Internet Filtering – We use a product called Smoothwall, this protects against access to certain internet sites and content that you would not want your children to see. 4. Monitoring of activity - Senso is a cloud based, real time monitoring of activity on school owned devices, designed to highlight [to school staff] users who may be vulnerable or at risk to themselves, at risk to others or behaving inappropriately. Senso indicates a potential concern by raising a “violation” when a keyword, acronym or phrase typed, matches against those found within our libraries. It sends automated alerts to the DSL’s. 5. Anti-Virus Software – Windows Defender. This is designed to detect and remove viruses and other kinds of malicious software from schools computers or laptops. 6. A Firewall - At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet, it monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on our organisation's previously established security policies 7. Multifactor Authentication (MFA) – This is where you not only have a password but use a secondary device (like an app on a phone) as additional confirmation of the users identity. This increases security because even if one credential becomes compromised, unauthorized users will be unable to meet the second authentication requirement and will not be able to access the system. 8. Geofencing - This helps protect devices and accounts from access from certain ‘high risk’ geographical areas. Online Safety Workshops Y ear 5 and Year 6 took part in workshops run by a lady who works with the GK Consultant Services (who specialise in safeguarding for children). The workshops were aimed specifically at teaching the children to understand about online friendships, consents, sharing images and videos, and how to access help when online.

  • Pupil Premium | captainwebb

    Ученик Премиум Назначение ученической премии Правительство считает, что ученический взнос, который является дополнительным к финансированию основной школы, является лучшим способом преодолеть существующее в настоящее время неравенство между детьми, имеющими право на бесплатное школьное питание (FSM), и их более обеспеченными сверстниками путем обеспечения того, чтобы финансирование для решения проблем неблагоприятного положения доходило до учеников. кому это нужно больше всего. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Для учеников из малообеспеченных семей, проживающих не в общеобразовательных школах, местные власти должны решить, как распределять школьную премию. Например, он может быть выделен месту, где они получают образование, или выделен местными властями для конкретных расходов на дополнительную образовательную поддержку для повышения уровня успеваемости этих учеников. Орган власти должен проконсультироваться с неосновными учреждениями о том, как следует использовать Премиум для этих учеников. DfE говорит: Взаимодействие с другими людьми Школы могут свободно тратить ученические взносы по своему усмотрению. Однако они будут нести ответственность за то, как они использовали дополнительное финансирование для поддержки учеников из малообеспеченных семей. В таблицы успеваемости будут включены новые показатели, которые будут отражать достижения тех обездоленных учеников, на которые распространяется ученический взнос. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Как родители и опекуны могут способствовать успеху программы Pupil Premium? Взаимодействие с другими людьми Если ваш ребенок имеет право на бесплатное школьное питание, стоит зарегистрировать его, даже если он не собирается обедать в школе, и даже если он имеет право на бесплатный ужин в соответствии с государственной программой всеобщего бесплатного школьного питания для младенцев. Это окажет прямое влияние на финансирование и максимизирует поддержку, которую мы можем предоставить. Взаимодействие с другими людьми Родительская поддержка и участие - ключевой фактор в повышении стандартов. Если вам нужна помощь или совет по содержанию вашего ребенка, или если вы не знаете, как подать заявку на бесплатное школьное питание, обратитесь к г-же Жаки Дарлингтон, которая является администратором положения Pupil Premium. Кто имеет право на бесплатное школьное питание? Взаимодействие с другими людьми Ваш ребенок может иметь право на бесплатное школьное питание, если вы имеете право получать любое из следующего: Поддержка доходов Пособие для ищущих работу на основе дохода Связанное с доходом пособие по трудоустройству и поддержке Поддержка в соответствии с частью VI Закона об иммиграции и убежище 1999 г. гарантированный элемент государственного пенсионного кредита Детский налоговый кредит (при условии, что вы также не имеете права на рабочий налоговый кредит и имеете годовой валовой доход не более 16 190 фунтов стерлингов) Просрочка рабочего налогового кредита - выплачивается в течение 4 недель после того, как вы перестанете иметь право на рабочий налоговый кредит Универсальный кредит Recovery Premium Funding 2023/24 Purpose Recovery premium is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by COVID-19. It is a time-limited grant providing over £300 million of additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021/22 academic year and £1 billion across the 2022/23 and 2023/24 academic years. ​ Eligible schools This includes Local authority-maintained schools such as ours. Pupil eligibility Recovery premium allocations for mainstream schools will be based on pupil premium eligibility. This includes: pupils who are recorded as eligible for free school meals or have been recorded as eligible in the past 6 years, including eligible children of families who have no recourse to public funds. children looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children. children previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children. Funding rates for academic year 2023/24 Recovery premium allocations for academic year 2023/24 will be calculated on a per pupil basis, based on the following rates. In mainstream education, the rates are: £145 per eligible pupil in primary schools Funding paid to schools. To ensure that recovery premium is focused on effective approaches to raising the educational attainment of disadvantaged pupils, schools must use their recovery premium (and pupil premium) in line with the ‘menu of approaches’ set by the Department for Education. The menu of approaches can be found in ’Using pupil premium: guidance for school leaders ’. The menu has been developed in line with the EEF’s 3-tiered approach to help schools allocate spending across the following 3 areas: supporting high-quality teaching, such as staff professional development providing targeted academic support, such as tutoring tackling non-academic barriers to academic success, such as difficulties with attendance, behaviour and social and emotional wellbeing In line with the EEF’s recommended approach, schools should prioritise high-quality teaching, though the exact balance of spending between tiers will vary depending on the specific needs of pupils. The menu includes tutoring, but recovery premium conditions of grant for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 academic years state that schools must not use the grant to meet their portion of the costs of tuition provided through the National Tutoring Programme (NTP). Recovery premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils, and schools do not have to spend recovery premium so that it solely benefits eligible pupils. Recovery premium can be used to support other pupils with identified needs, such as pupils who have or have had a social worker, or pupils who act as a carer. It can also be used for whole class interventions, for example high-quality teaching, which will also benefit non-disadvantaged pupils. High attaining eligible pupils should receive just as much focus as lower attaining eligible pupils when it comes to spending funding. Evidence shows that eligible pupils who are among the highest performers at key stage 2 are more likely than their non-eligible peers to fall behind by key stage 4. ​ Accountability Schools must show they are using their recovery premium effectively: by publishing a statement on their website which presents an overview of their pupil premium and recovery premium strategy, and demonstrates that their use of the funding meets the requirements of the conditions of grant through inspections by Ofsted - inspectors may discuss plans schools have to spend their pupil premium and recovery premium funding through scrutiny of pupil premium and recovery premium plans by governors and trustees by declaring that they have spent the funding in line with the conditions of grant (including that it has not been spent on NTP) and can demonstrate this upon request ​ See current Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2023/24 below Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2023.24 Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2022.23 Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021.22 Pupil Premium Plan 2020.2021 Covid Catch Up Premium Plan 2020.2021

  • Music | captainwebb

    Music Curriculum Statement Intent Our intent is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that allows them to develop as confident responsible citizens equipped with the skills that will allow them to be successful in our ever-changing world, both in the present and the future. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities (memorable experiences) to engage learners and develop their cultural capital which has been recognised as essential if children are to succeed. We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills. We are fully committed to developing each child's unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We use our Captain Webb Values to promote positive attitudes to learning: ​ Listen Encourage Achieve Respect Nurture ​ Music and singing are integral to the life of a Captain Webb child. We provide a vibrant musical experience for all children with fun and enjoyment at its heart. Our objective at Captain Webb is to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music may wish to be expressed in any person’s life. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music in a variety of different contexts. We provide opportunities for all children to compose, play, perform and enjoy music. Through our music curriculum pupils will gain self-confidence and a sense of achievement. Children will develop their capacity to express ideas and feelings through the medium of sound. Extra-curricular clubs such as our school choir, musical theatre club and instrumental lessons enhance our curriculum offer. Implementation Music is firmly embedded into everyday life at Captain Webb. We deliver a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum through Charanga. Music is taught for one hour weekly. Music lessons in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are taught by Telford and Wrekin Music and EYFS have music sessions delivered by Music Minors. Utilising specialist teachers ensures knowledge and skills are progressive from the age of 2 to the age of 11 as well as giving our children the opportunity to experience learning instruments from experienced tutors. This also ensures that children receive high quality music provision and that teachers receive valuable, regular CPD. Charanga includes many examples of music styles and genres from different times and places. These are explored through the language of music via active listening, performing and composing activities, which enable understanding of the context and genre. In doing so children gain an understanding into different methods of creating notes, as well as how to read basic music notation. They also learn to compose focussing on different dimensions of music, which in turn feeds their understanding when playing or appraising music. Weekly music lessons are just the start here at Captain Webb. Singing and music underpin everything that we do which is currently being evidenced in our Artsmark journey. One of our popular extra-curricular clubs is our Key Stage 2 Young Voices Group where we make community links and sing at our local Dawley Christmas Light Switch On. We also perform in homes for the elderly which both the children and adults thoroughly enjoy. Our extra-curricular clubs and ‘Composer/artist of the Week’ enhance our cultural capital and children hear music from Beethoven right through to Destiny’s Child. Singing is also embedded in our weekly singing assemblies and we are proud to say we are a Sing Up school that supports children in finding their voices. There is plenty of opportunity for children to sing and play instruments as part of our Captain Webb’s Got Talent showcase every summer. Children at Captain Webb regularly experience live music in the form of theatre shows and live bands. Live performances add to the music offer all children receive and provide opportunities for Pupil Premium children that they might not otherwise experience. Impact All children will benefit from a high-quality music education which engages and inspires them to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. It will increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they will develop a growing musical vocabulary that allows them to critically engage with music. Teaching and learning of music is a reflective process for the children as they are given the opportunities to assess themselves and their peers. The children also celebrate their success and skills with their peers and wider audiences. We assess through teacher assessment, pictures and video evidence which captures each child’s progress throughout the year. We utilise pupil voice regularly as a means of engaging children in their own learning and what they would like to see in their Captain Webb music journey. As part of our music provision, we achieved an Excellence in Music Provision Award from The Music Partnership and our Year 3 pupils received a Distinction in Music Performance from the University of West London.

    Art Curriculum Statement Intent Our intent is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that allows them to develop as confident responsible citizens equipped with the skills that will allow them to be successful in our ever-changing world, both in the present and the future. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities (memorable experiences) to engage learners and develop their cultural capital which has been recognised as essential if children are to succeed. We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills. We are fully committed to developing each child's unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We use our Captain Webb Values to promote positive attitudes to learning: Listen Encourage Achieve Respect Nurture Our school believes that art is a vital part in children’s education as it can give children the opportunities to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. A high-quality art education – along with sequential and progressive lessons - will help to engage, excite and empower our children as well as equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own artwork and crafts. From this children are able to make links with their learning to produce amazing art! As pupils progress throughout our school, they will have a strong understanding of the key art elements (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, 3D forms), to be able to effectively plan and create pieces of art and evaluate it. Children will also recognise how art has changed throughout the years as they are exposed to many artists and art movements. The art curriculum will develop children’s critical abilities, as well as an understanding of their own and others’ cultural heritages through the study of a diverse range of artists. An example of this is in Year 3, children take inspiration from cubism artist Paul Klee and African American artist Alma Thomas. Finally in Year 4, who look at sculpture and the work of Alberto Giacometti, also study the works of Richard Hunt who is an African American sculptor. In Year 6, children study the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. All children will be exposed to artists from many cultural heritages from out ‘Art in the Moment’ displays. Implementation The teaching of art at Captain Webb Primary School is based on the National Curriculum and is also linked to class topics to ensure a well-structured approach. Knowledge and Skills that the children will develop, are effectively mapped out across each year group and are progressive throughout the school. Children are given the knowledge to help them understand the context of the artwork as well as the artist they are learning about. With this knowledge and the skills that follow they are able to take inspiration and produce individual pieces of artwork on their own Children are also given the chance to develop their artistic skills by being given opportunities to practise and master them. Every year group at Captain Webb Primary School follows the same art journey: Art Gallery – Looking at many pieces of art from a focus artist Exploration of other artists Introduction to new knowledge or skill (experimentation) Evaluation of mediums or methods Creating a plan Creating their final piece Evaluating Acting upon evaluation Comparing Artists (KS2 Only) Our high-quality art curriculum is supported by a wide variety of art resources and mediums. These are used to help children experiment and develop confidence as they progress through the school. Staff at Captain Webb Primary have also received high quality CPD training on the effective use of sketchbooks. This ensures all children at Captain Webb can use sketchbook effectively. Impact The structure of the art curriculum ensures that children are able to develop their knowledge and understanding of the work of artists, craftspeople and designers from a range of times and cultures and apply this knowledge to their own work. Our curriculum is well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. Children learn to understand the key principles of art: line, tone, texture, shape, form, space, pattern, colour, contrast, proportion and perspective. Children have the chance to refine their skills as they progress through year groups. This also supports children having age related expectations at the end of their year. Art is celebrated around the school with artwork being displayed throughout the school e.g. work displayed in classes, sculptures being displayed around the school. We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods: Images of the children’s practical learning. Asking the pupils about their learning (pupil voice). Moderation staff meetings where pupil’s books are scrutinised and there is the opportunity for a dialogue between teachers to understand their class’s work. Verbal feedback of work throughout the course of the lessons.

  • P.E. and Sport Premium Funding | captainwebb

    Финансирование физических и спортивных премий About the PE and sport premium Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. The PE and sport premium has been allocated, by the government, to help primary schools achieve this commitment to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools, so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. ​ How we use the PE and sport premium Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding. This means that we must use the PE and sport premium to: develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years We should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by: providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered adopting an active mile initiative raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 - every child should leave primary school able to swim The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement, for example by: actively encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support the delivery of sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sports leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes) embedding physical activity into the school day through encouraging active travel to and from school, active break times and holding active lessons and teaching Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by: providing staff with professional development, mentoring, appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school hiring qualified sports coaches and PE specialists to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities offered to pupils - teachers should learn from coaches the necessary skills to be able to teach these new sports and physical activities effectively Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils, for example by: introducing a new range of sports and physical activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities partnering with other schools to run sports and physical activities and clubs providing more and broadening the variety of extra-curricular physical activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sports organisations Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by: increasing and actively encouraging pupils’ participation in the School Games organising more sport competitions or tournaments within the school coordinating and entering more sport competitions or tournaments across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations ​ Online reporting As part of the funding agreement all schools must publish details of how they spend their PE and sport premium funding. These reports must be published online. ​ Online reporting must clearly show: the amount of PE and sport premium received a full breakdown of how it has been spent the impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE, physical activity, and sport participation and attainment how the improvements will be sustainable in the future We are also required to publish the percentage of pupils within our year 6 cohort who met the national curriculum requirement to: swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations ​ Below are our reports Evidencing The Impact of Sports Funding PE & Sports Premium Funding Plan 2023.24 PE & Sports Premium Funding Plan 2022.23 PE & Sports Premium Funding Plan 2021.2022 PE & Sports Premium Funding Plan 2020.2021 План действий по финансированию премий школьного спорта на 2019/20 Влияние финансирования спортивных премий в 2020/21 году Review of Impact of Sports Premium Funding 2020/21 Evidencing the Impact of Sports Premium Funding 2021/22

  • Science | captainwebb

    Science Curriculum Statement Intent Our intent is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting, and empowering curriculum that allows them to develop as confident responsible citizens equipped with the skills that will allow them to be successful in our ever-changing world, both in the present and the future. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative, and enquiring time in our lives. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities (memorable experiences) to engage learners and develop their cultural capital which has been recognised as essential if children are to succeed. We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills. We are fully committed to developing each child's unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We use our Captain Webb Values to promote positive attitudes to learning: Listen Encourage Achieve Respect Nurture At Captain Webb, our intention is to provide a high-quality science education that provides children with the foundations they need to recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. As one of the core subjects taught in primary schools, we give the teaching and learning of science the prominence and relevance it requires. Through science learning, our children have a greater awareness of the role of science in everyday life. Science at Captain Webb ignites pupils' curiosity and offers opportunities to develop their observation, questioning and reasoning skills whilst equipping them with the key knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We intend for our children to think independently and to be life-long learners who are enthused, curious and inquisitive, confident to ask ‘Big Questions’ and who are well prepared for their future in the ever-changing world. Implementation Our pupils leave Captain Webb with all the knowledge and skills required to be curious and confident scientists by embedding a curriculum that helps children foster a healthy curiosity about the world around them. Our curriculum has been planned to ensure that the knowledge children have is built upon not only each year, but each term and within every science lesson. We’ve found that this increases children’s enthusiasm for the topic whilst embedding procedural knowledge into their long-term memory. Knowledge within our science curriculum is taught through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics. These are mapped out across the year groups to ensure progression. Our knowledge-based curriculum encourages practical exploration and investigation activities, which enable our children to think and behave like scientists. Children understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. Thus, our curriculum aims to enable pupils to develop enquiring minds with a range of investigative skills. Please see our science knowledge and skills grid, which shows end of year key knowledge and highlights progression through the scientific strands. Science Knowledge and Skills Grid 23.25 - BIOLOGY Science Knowledge and Skills Grid 23.25 - CHEMISTRY Science Knowledge and Skills Grid 23.25 - PHYSICS Science Knowledge and Skills Grid 23.25 - NEW SKILLS Working scientifically plays an important role in our science planning as it means that children able to obtain key scientific knowledge through practical experiences like using scientific equipment, conducting experiments, and explaining ideas confidently. Below are our BIG science questions that children have the opportunity to explore and answer throughout the year. These show children the range of scientific enquiry methods we can use to investigate scientific phenomena’s. Scientific Enquiry Science at Captain Webb is taught through blocks which supports children to develop mastery of the subject. Children working at greater depth can revisit their learning and delve deeper into the topic. At the beginning of each topic, initial assessments are completed to determine prior knowledge and ensure that progression is consistent. Children also ask 6 ‘big questions’ about their topic to inform teachers’ planning and guarantee that learning is driven by children’s interests. This further develops their enthusiasm for the topic. Our science policy highlights coverage of science unit blocks in each year group, planning and assessment tools. Science Policy 24.25 Impact As well as monitoring of attainment, the impact of effective science teaching is clear in the children’s ability to apply their knowledge to scientific enquiries. The impact of science is also evident within the opportunities we provide to develop cultural capital. We do this across the curriculum and throughout the school by: Organising events such as Science Week or STEM Week, allowing pupils to apply their knowledge and skills to cross-curricular concepts or topics Working closely with local secondary schools, thus demonstrating a love of science work and an interest in further study and work in this field Working collaboratively and practically to investigate and experiment Having butterflies and chicks to assist with real-life learning about life cycles Igniting curiosity through our memorable experiences, including the Wonderdome and Dorothy Clive Gardens Exposing children to a variety of visits where they explore animals and their habitats, including Blue Planet Aquarium, Chester Zoo, and visits from the Exotic Zoo Visiting a theme park so pupils can experience forces in a real-life context Numerous visits to the local area to widen children’s understanding of the area around them

  • Our Curriculum | captainwebb

    Curriculum Design Statement Intent, Implementation and Impact Our curriculum provides children with engaging, exciting and empowering learning experiences that allows them to be successful. They become confident, responsible citizens equipped with the skills that will allow them to be successful in our ever-changing world, both in the present and the future. ​ We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative, and enquiring time in our lives. We constantly provide context enrichment opportunities to engage learners and develop their cultural capital which has been recognised as essential if children are to succeed. ​ We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills. We are fully committed to developing each child's unique potential within a secure and caring environment. ​ We use our Captain Webb Values to promote positive attitudes to learning: ​ Listen Encourage Achieve Respect Nurture ​ Our children have a sense of belonging and value the community in which they live therefore community involvement is an integral part of the school. Regular invitations to families and visitors facilitate learning new and sharing experiences such as assemblies, curriculum outcomes and community days take place. Children regularly contribute to supporting and developing their local community. To see how we implement our curriculum please select from the links below. Curriculum Framework Overview - Year R Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 2 Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 4 Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 1 Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 3 Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 5 Curriculum Framework Overview - Year 6 Each year group have a curriculum overview which maps out the whole year curriculum planning. Each subject leader will have a long-term plan which sets the learning for the year for their subject area. Progression documents have been created to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum. These have been developed following research and advice from expert leaders in education. Medium-term plans are created from progression documentation and longer-term plans to ensure coherent coverage of key knowledge, skills and concepts and clear progression routes over a sequence of lessons. Prior learning is evident on plans which supports teachers with ensuring key knowledge is revisited. Senior leaders and subject leaders will monitor planning for compliance. Reading is a high priority for the school where the selection of texts has been thought about carefully and invested in heavily. Text have been carefully mapped out to ensure they compliment the wider curriculum at an appropriate age-related standard. There is a commitment for children to gain a love of reading which is evident through the reading areas throughout school. Teachers react to the needs of the children and each cohort to ensure that the children’s needs are being met. Whether this is through SEND or cohort specific needs. The emotional needs of the children are met through a variety of external and internal specialists including a play therapist, counsellor, educational psychologist, LSAT, Mental Health Support Practitioner, behaviour and SEND outreach, Talk and drawing and ELSA. Children are immersed in a variety of experiences throughout their time at Captain Webb Primary & Nursery. These are often at the start of new learning to enhance their understanding and support children within knowing more and remembering more. Forest school is available to all pupils throughout the year to enhance the children’s love of learning and enquiry skills. They gain lifelong skills outside of classroom environment. During their time at Captain Webb Primary & Nursery, children will have the opportunity to attend Arthog Outreach (Y3 &Y5), Arthog residential (Y4) and France in Y6. Assessment for learning opportunities take place in lesson to assess prior knowledge and information gained in a lesson. Teachers use these to address any misconceptions. To support our assessment of the core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) we use Ruth Miskin Assessments for RWI, Salford Reading ages, Fluency assessments, White Rose Mathematical tests & Rising Stars for Science. We capture data at 3 points across the academic year at the end of the of the Autumn, Spring and Summer Term to ensure that all children are making at least expected progress. By the time children leave Captain Webb Primary & Nursery, they have the appropriate knowledge and skills required to be secondary ready.

  • Writing | captainwebb

    Writing Curriculum Statement Intent At Captain Webb Primary, we want all children to be able to communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions confidently through their writing. We believe that all children should experience an abundance of quality, engaging texts that fosters a love for reading and stimulates children to write. We want all children to be immersed in a rich, creative and carefully planned curriculum that provides real life contexts for writing. ​ We recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts. We believe in setting high standards in the presentation of writing along with setting the important foundations in spelling and grammar. Our aim is for all children to leave our school, fully equipped with the literacy skills to achieve their dreams in future life and memories of their literacy journey at ‘Captain Webb’ lasting a life time. ​ Implementation At Captain Webb Primary School, we understand the importance of a learning journey that leads to opportunities for extended pieces of writing. We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Please click on the link below for our whole school writing progression grid. Whole School Writing Progression Grids Our teaching of writing across the school is linked to a topic or a class text, carefully chosen to inspire and excite the children. All writing units will start with a stimulus, which could be a high quality reading text or a memorable experience. Our teacher’s plan exciting memorable experiences every half term. These class visits provide the children with meaningful experiences to support them in writing for a range of purposes and illustrate how their writing skills can be applied to real life contexts. ​ Our teachers also use carefully selected, high-quality reading texts, relating to the History, Geography or Science focus or from the author focus for the half term. Children are expected to transfer their key topic knowledge and vocabulary into their writing and vice versa to transfer their spelling, grammar and punctuation knowledge into their topic work. We expect the high standards for writing in Literacy lessons to be evident within the work in all books. At Captain Webb Primary School, we believe that writing is strengthened by instilling a love for reading within our pupils. ​ Every year group has a yearly Curriculum Map that outlines where narrative or non-narrative are taught and links to other curriculum areas such as reading and humanities. Detailed Medium Term planning supports teachers to plan a sequence of progressive weekly lessons and over time, giving the children time to master new concepts. Within this document, key objectives and vocabulary are outlined.​ The curriculum has been specifically sequenced in a logical progression to ensure that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before: Early Years to Year 6. This enables our pupils to know more and remember more. End points and target points within objectives are identified for each year group through a whole school progression plans. 2 Year Old Provision Read More Pre-School Read More Reception Read More Year 1 Read More Year 2 Read More Year 3 Read More Year 4 Read More Year 5 Read More Year 6 Read More Medium Term Plan Example How is Writing taught at Captain Webb? We use carefully chosen model texts as well as live teacher modelling and shared writing so that pupils can see the process involved in creating a piece of writing. The learning journey is captured throughout a unit of work and is documented through consistent working walls and washing lines. Please find examples of these on the photographs below. We recognise the vital importance of exposing our pupils to a rich and varied vocabulary and understand that their acquisition and command of vocabulary are key to their learning and progress across the whole curriculum. We use model texts and class novels to teach vocabulary in context and encourage discussion around word choices when writing. Dictionaries, thesauruses and word mats are readily available throughout all writing lessons. Guided writing sessions are used to target specific needs of both groups and individuals. All children are given focus spellings and are encouraged to integrate these into their writing. The weekly spellings are taken from the spelling rules being taught in their discrete RWI spelling session. (Refer to the spelling section below for more information.) The children are given the opportunity to write at length daily and all pupils complete an extended, independent piece of writing at the end of a unit of work known as their hot write. Teachers use the hot writes to measure the progress made within a unit of writing and targets are set in readiness for the next piece of writing. Here is an example from Year 2 Staff follow our Marking and Feedback policy, to provide pupils with live feedback as much as possible so that children are actively involved in drafting, editing and improving their writing. From an early age, children are encouraged to proofread their work carefully to check for spelling and punctuation errors. By the time children get to Key Stage 2, they will plan, draft and edit independently, enabling them to fully take part in the writing process. In Early Years, writing is taught under the area of Literacy: Reading & Writing. To support the learning of Writing, the skills in EYFS are essential. Children are given opportunities to write at each of their stations set up in the EYFS learning area, both in and outside of the classroom. Children are encouraged to know how to grip their pencil and build muscles for writing. More formal writing sessions begin in Reception through our systematic phonics programme, Read, Write Inc Phonics. Pupils are taught letter sounds and how to blend and segment to read and write simple words and phrases matched to the sounds learnt. As children’s phonics skills and knowledge of letter sounds develop further, children will then begin to complete writing tasks linked to a class text, using their phonics knowledge to write for a wider range of purposes. To find out more about writing in the EYFS, please follow this link. EYFS Curriculum At Captain Webb, we identify children who need additional support and provide intervention in the most effective and efficient way that we can. We run phonics, reading and writing intervention groups and ensure that our lessons are effectively differentiated to maximise each child’s potential. Spelling ​ The ability to write ideas down fluently requires a good understanding of spelling. In Reception and Key Stage 1, we follow the Read Write Inc Phonics programme to teach pupils how to write phonemes as graphemes. Please click on this link to find out more about Read Write Inc Phonics Spelling. From Year 2 to Year 6, we use the follow on programme Read Write Inc. Spelling. These schemes ensure full coverage of, and progression within the National Curriculum requirements. To find out more about the Read Write Inc Spellings programme please click on this link. Read Write Inc Spelling Programme Handwriting Handwriting is taught in line with the National Curriculum objectives. In the Early Years, pupils complete fine motor activities to develop hand/finger strength and are taught how to hold a pencil correctly. In Reception, all pupils are taught how to form their letters correctly using the Read Write Inc Phonics programme. For more information, please click on the links below. Read Write Inc. Phonics From Year 2 onwards, through daily handwriting lessons, we begin to explicitly teach correct joins, consistent letter size and clear ascenders and descenders. We follow the Nelson Handwriting scheme. Additional support is given through handwriting interventions where needed. Please refer to the handwriting policy below for more information on how handwriting is taught at Captain Webb Handwriting Policy Impact By the time children leave Captain Webb Primary School, they are competent writers who able to write creatively for a range of purposes. They can write for a sustained amount of time, manipulating grammar and punctuation skills to produce a crafted piece of written work. Our pupils acquire a wide vocabulary and have a strong command of the written word. Most importantly, they have a positive view of writing due to learning in an environment where writing is promoted as being an exciting, engaging and enjoyable subject in which they can express themselves confidently and creatively. ​ ‘We went to Warwick Castle and I know lots of facts about Castles now. I’ve written a report about Castle Defences.’ – Year 2 pupil. “I really enjoyed the story ‘On the Way Home’ by Jill Murphy. We wrote our own version of the story but changed it to ‘All the way around Dawley.’ It was so much fun. We went for a walk around the local area and used what we saw in our story like Captain Webb’s memorial.” Year 2 pupil. ‘Our visits help us with English because they help give us better descriptions of what we’re writing about. When we went to Blists Hill, we got to see real Victorian streets and a Victorian schoolroom, which I included in my story.’ – Year 6 pupil. ‘Writing in theme lessons gives us a wider variety of topics to write about and gives us inspiration about new things like when we wrote a science experiment about how lemons and oranges can power an LED light!’ – Year 6 pupil. Outcomes of work in both English and other books evidence the high quality of work and the impact of varied and cross-curricular writing opportunities. Attainment in writing is measured consistently throughout the year. At the three assessment checkpoints, progress is tracked, using our year group writing standards, which have been taken from the National Curriculum. For those children who have yet to access the Year 1 statements, pre key stage statements are used. Termly moderations take place, to quality assure judgements made. These are either in house, or as part of a cluster of local schools. End of Key Stage writing: teachers will assess a selection of pieces of writing in Years 2 and Year 6, using this to inform reported Teacher assessment judgements. Exemplification materials are used to support judgements made. Assessment data shows that… KS1 results have seen a steady rise and in 2019, 78% reached ARE with 22% reaching greater depth which is above national expectations. In 2019, 78% of KS2 children achieved ARE in writing and 20% greater depth which is in line with national expectations.
