  • Online Safety | captainwebb

    Sécurité en ligne 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 Nos enfants vivent désormais dans un « Village mondial » et il est important que nous travaillions ensemble pour garantir la sécurité de nos enfants à la fois dans le monde réel et en ligne. ​ ​ Comment nous assurons la sécurité des enfants en ligne ​ À l'école primaire Captain Webb, les enfants apprennent à rester en sécurité en ligne en étant conscients de leur conduite (leur propre comportement en ligne), en sachant ce qu'est et comment trouver un contenu approprié et les risques de contact de la part des personnes qu'ils connaissent et des personnes qu'ils connaissent. ne sais pas. ​ La sécurité en ligne est liée à chaque unité de notre programme informatique (voir ci-dessous). Nous bloquons une semaine entière de travaux thématiques pour que les enfants apprennent les aspects spécifiques à l'âge de la sécurité en ligne pendant la « Semaine pour un Internet plus sûr » et l'école est visitée par plusieurs agences extérieures (telles que la NSPCC, Google et la police locale) pour se renseigner sur les problèmes de sécurité en ligne. Notre conseil étudiant joue un rôle actif dans les discussions et la prise de décision concernant tous les aspects de la sécurité, y compris la sécurité en ligne. ​ Nous jouons un rôle actif auprès des parents, rencontrant régulièrement toute personne susceptible d'avoir des inquiétudes quant à la sécurité de son enfant sur Internet. Si vous avez des inquiétudes concernant la sécurité en ligne, n'hésitez pas à nous contacter et à venir parler à l'un de nos experts en sécurité en ligne. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Conseils pour assurer la sécurité de votre enfant en ligne : ​ Sachez ce que vos enfants font en ligne et à qui ils parlent. Demandez-leur de vous apprendre à utiliser des applications que vous n'avez jamais utilisées. Garder l'ordinateur dans une salle familiale signifie que vous pouvez partager l'expérience en ligne de votre enfant – et qu'il est moins susceptible d'agir de manière inappropriée (c'est-à-dire via une webcam). Aidez vos enfants à comprendre qu'ils ne doivent jamais donner de détails personnels à des amis en ligne - les informations personnelles incluent leur identifiant de messagerie, leur adresse e-mail, leur numéro de téléphone portable et toute photo d'eux-mêmes, de leur famille ou de leurs amis. Si votre enfant publie une photo ou une vidéo en ligne, tout le monde peut la modifier ou la partager. Rappelez-leur que n'importe qui peut regarder leurs images et qu'un jour un futur employeur pourrait le faire ! Si votre enfant reçoit des spams/courriers indésirables et des SMS, rappelez-lui de ne jamais les croire, répondez-y ou utilisez-les. Ce n'est pas une bonne idée que votre enfant ouvre des fichiers provenant de personnes qu'il ne connaît pas. Ils ne sauront pas ce qu'ils contiennent - cela pourrait être un virus, ou pire - une image ou un film inapproprié. Aidez votre enfant à comprendre que certaines personnes mentent en ligne et qu'il est donc préférable de garder les amis connectés en ligne. Ils ne devraient jamais rencontrer d'étrangers sans un adulte en qui ils ont confiance. Gardez toujours la communication ouverte pour qu'un enfant sache qu'il n'est jamais trop tard pour dire à quelqu'un si quelque chose le met mal à l'aise. Apprenez aux jeunes comment bloquer quelqu'un en ligne et comment le signaler s'il se sent mal à l'aise. ​ Sites Web utiles Ces sites Web peuvent vous être utiles si vous souhaitez en savoir plus sur la sécurité sur Internet : www.ceop.gov.uk - Le Centre contre l'exploitation des enfants et la protection en ligne (CEOP) se consacre à l'éradication des abus sexuels sur les enfants. Il s'agit d'une agence gouvernementale qui fait partie de la police britannique et qui s'occupe principalement de suivre et de traduire les délinquants en justice, directement ou en partenariat avec les forces locales et internationales. www.thinkuknow.co.uk - Le Centre contre l'exploitation des enfants et la protection en ligne (CEOP) a mis en place son propre site Web éducatif qui a été conçu et écrit spécifiquement pour les enfants, les jeunes, les enseignants, les parents et les soignants. www.kidsmart.org.uk - Kidsmart est un site Web de sécurité Internet primé pour les parents et ceux qui travaillent avec des enfants. Il a été développé par l'association caritative Internet pour enfants Childnet International et contient d'excellentes informations sur de nombreuses technologies utilisées par les enfants, avec des conseils sur la façon de « rester en sécurité » en ligne. http://parents.vodafone.com/ - Vodafone a développé ce site Web en collaboration avec mumsnet. Il est très accessible et fournit des informations et des conseils aux parents pour comprendre le monde numérique de leur enfant et pour s'impliquer davantage. Il y a même un test en ligne pour voir combien vous en savez ! 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.

  • Spellings | captainwebb

    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. https://youtu.be/CuLGvjOTk6A ​ 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.

  • Pupil Premium | captainwebb

    Prime élève Le but de la prime élève Le gouvernement estime que la prime pour les élèves, qui s'ajoute au financement de l'école principale, est le meilleur moyen de remédier aux inégalités sous-jacentes actuelles entre les enfants éligibles aux repas scolaires gratuits (FSM) et leurs pairs les plus riches en veillant à ce que le financement pour lutter contre les désavantages atteigne les élèves. qui en a le plus besoin. ​ Pour les élèves issus de familles à faible revenu dans des contextes non conventionnels, il appartient à l'autorité locale de décider comment allouer la prime élève. Par exemple, il pourrait être affecté au milieu où ils sont scolarisés, ou tenu par l'autorité locale de dépenser spécifiquement pour un soutien éducatif supplémentaire afin d'élever le niveau de réussite de ces élèves. L'autorité doit consulter les paramètres non traditionnels sur la façon dont la prime pour ces élèves doit être utilisée. Le DfE dit : ​ Les écoles sont libres de dépenser la prime d'élève comme elles l'entendent. Cependant, ils seront tenus responsables de la manière dont ils ont utilisé les fonds supplémentaires pour soutenir les élèves issus de familles à faible revenu. De nouvelles mesures seront incluses dans les tableaux de performances qui saisiront les réalisations des élèves défavorisés couverts par la prime scolaire. ​ Comment les parents et les aidants peuvent-ils contribuer au succès du programme Pupil Premium ? ​ Si votre enfant a droit à des repas scolaires gratuits, cela vaut la peine de l'inscrire même s'il ne va pas déjeuner à l'école, et même s'il a droit à un dîner gratuit dans le cadre du programme gouvernemental de repas scolaires gratuits pour nourrissons. Cela aura un impact direct sur le financement et maximisera le soutien que nous pouvons fournir. ​ Le soutien et l'implication des parents est un facteur clé dans l'élévation des normes. Si vous souhaitez obtenir de l'aide ou des conseils pour soutenir votre enfant, ou si vous ne savez pas comment faire une demande pour vous inscrire aux repas scolaires gratuits, veuillez contacter Mme Jacqui Darlington qui est administratrice de la disposition Pupil Premium. Qui a droit aux repas scolaires gratuits ? ​ Votre enfant peut avoir droit à des repas scolaires gratuits, si vous avez droit à l'un des éléments suivants : Soutien du revenu Allocation de demandeur d'emploi basée sur le revenu Allocation d'emploi et de soutien liée au revenu Soutien au titre de la partie VI de la loi de 1999 sur l'immigration et l'asile l'élément garanti du crédit de pension de l'État Crédit d'impôt pour enfants (à condition que vous n'ayez pas également droit au crédit d'impôt pour le travail et que votre revenu brut annuel ne dépasse pas 16 190 £) Crédit d'impôt sur le travail - payé pendant 4 semaines après avoir cessé de bénéficier du crédit d'impôt sur le travail Crédit Universel 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 | captainwebb

    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

    Financement des primes d'éducation physique et de sport 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 Plan d'action pour le financement de la prime sportive scolaire 2019/20 Impact du financement de la prime sportive 2020/21 Review of Impact of Sports Premium Funding 2020/21 Evidencing the Impact of Sports Premium Funding 2021/22

  • Memorable Experiences | captainwebb

    Expériences mémorables Offrir aux enfants des « expériences mémorables » significatives est un ingrédient clé de l'apprentissage à l'école primaire Captain Webb. Au début de chaque thème semestriel, chaque promotion part soit en visite, soit en journée thématique animée par un expert du domaine. Cela permet aux enfants de faire l'expérience, de première main, d'éléments importants pour chaque domaine d'apprentissage thématique; entendre et utiliser le vocabulaire clé ; contextualiser leur écriture et leurs mathématiques et développer une solide compréhension des concepts historiques, géographiques ou scientifiques pertinents. Nous offrons également à nos enfants de nombreuses opportunités d'apprentissage en plein air grâce à des visites d'une journée et résidentielles au Arthog Outreach Centre au Pays de Galles et à un voyage résidentiel en France en sixième année! Notre objectif est de garantir que (en visitant des musées locaux et régionaux et des sites d'intérêt historique et géographique) les enfants quittent notre école à la fin de l'étape clé 2 avec un capital culturel et une profonde appréciation d'où ils viennent. ​ Un enfant qui passe ses années d'école primaire à l'école primaire Captain Webb aura vécu deux journées thématiques dirigées par un enseignant à l'école ; a fait quatre voyages dans la communauté locale; visité cinq sites d'intérêt local; appris de quatorze experts dans leur domaine; visité huit points de repère géographiques et historiques et expérimente des artefacts et des expositions de neuf musées différents ! La réception a fait l'expérience d'une gamme d'animaux exotiques dans le cadre de leur sujet sur « Que se passe-t-il lorsque nous nous endormons ? L'année 2, visitez Park Hall Farm au début de leur sujet « Muck, mess and Mixtures » L'année 4 a construit un tipi le « Native American Day » pendant le thème « Road Trip USA » et a visité le Langley Science Department pendant leur thème « Potions ». L'année 5 a fait l'expérience d'être Tudors lors d'un atelier sur leur sujet « Off with Her Head ! » L'année 6 a visité le Birmingham Sea Life Centre dans le cadre de leur sujet « Frozen Kingdom ». Voici ce que notre conseil des élèves a à dire sur les expériences mémorables de l'école primaire Captain Webb : ​ Qu'est-ce qu'une expérience mémorable ? ​ « Quand nous avons des visiteurs experts ou lorsque nous faisons des voyages dont nous allons nous souvenir » Pourquoi faisons-nous des expériences mémorables ? Pour passer un bon moment et se souvenir de ces expériences pour toujours - même lorsque nous sommes plus âgés Pour vous aider dans votre apprentissage - pour voir les choses dans la vraie vie Pour nous aider dans notre écriture – afin que nous sachions sur quoi nous écrivons. Cela le rend réel pour nous. Vous pouvez imaginer les choses plus clairement lorsque vous les apprenez. Pour nous aider avec tous les autres sujets aussi. Ils mettent le vocabulaire dans des situations de la vie réelle. Parfois, nous l'utilisons pour faire des travaux contextuels en mathématiques. L'année dernière, nous sommes allés au zoo de Chester et nous avons pu concevoir le nouveau parc lorsque nous en apprenions davantage sur la région. Nous pouvons passer un bon moment et nous souvenir des bons moments passés dans notre école. Lorsqu'un expert intervient, il peut nous aider. Ils nous aident à apprendre. Si vous allez dans un musée, vous ne pouvez pas poser de questions sur les objets… mais vous pouvez les poser à un visiteur expert ! Les expériences mémorables vous aident-elles dans votre apprentissage ? Oui... surtout en écriture, maths, thème, sciences, lecture, histoire, géographie et RE (quand on va à l'église) « Si nous ne faisions plus d'expériences mémorables, nous ne verrions pas les choses dans la vraie vie et cela affecterait notre apprentissage. L'école serait loin d'être aussi bonne. Selon vous, quelle a été votre meilleure expérience mémorable jusqu'à présent ? ​ West Midlands Safari Park parce que nous avons pu faire des manèges qui ont aidé à notre écriture narrative qui se déroulait dans un parc à thème. Western Park parce que nous fabriquions des jouets et que nous apprenions les jouets. Park Hall Farm parce que j'ai pu voir tous les animaux sur lesquels nous apprenions. Le spectacle Golden Ticket parce qu'on a vu un clown. Voir un scientifique disséquer un cœur parce que cela nous a montré à quoi ressemblaient toutes les chambres du cœur. Pizza Express parce que nous devons faire une pizza ! Nous sommes allés dans une ferme et c'était super parce que nous avons pu voir une course de cochons. Inoubliable! Faire un vrai tipi quand nous apprenions à connaître les Amérindiens parce que nous avons vécu comment ils vivaient vraiment. Stone Age Center parce que nous avons dû utiliser du vrai charbon de bois pour faire des œuvres d'art, tout comme les gens de l'âge de pierre. ​ ​

    School Games Mark Award 2022.23 Captain Webb received the top accolade for school sport and games: The School Games GOLD Award ! This Government led scheme rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. We have achieved this award for 4 years running (excluding COVID years). AWARD WINNING PROVISION OF PE. P.E 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 Implementation Physical Education is taught at Captain Webb Primary School as an area of learning, as well as being integrated where possible with other curriculum areas such as Maths where we provide a contextual opportunity for time and measure. We have implemented a curriculum where pupils from the age of 2 to the age of 11 not only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities that broaden their knowledge and experience. PE consists of two hourly lessons per week. During the summer term Year 5 and 6 receive high quality swimming lessons where there is also a focus on performing lifesaving strokes. ​ The key knowledge and skills of each topic are mapped across each year group. This ensures that children develop their knowledge of games, dance, gymnastics, athletics and outdoor and adventurous activity progressively throughout the whole school. The skills in these areas are also developed systematically, with the programme of study for each year group building on previous learning and preparing for subsequent years. Knowledge and skills are informed and linked to enable achievement of key stage end points, as informed by the 2014 National Curriculum. We teach lessons so that children develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. Every lesson requires the children to think of the importance of preparing their body for physical activity, acquiring and developing new knowledge and skills and also evaluating and improving their performances and the performance of others. ​ As part of the Telford School Sport Partnership children are given a wide range of opportunities to engage in inter and intra competitions throughout the year. This allows them to communicate, collaborate and compete against each other on a consistent basis. At Captain Webb we acquire an outside agency to teach PE alongside class teachers. This ensures that every child receives high quality PE and that teachers receive specialist training on a regular basis. This guarantees sustainability. They also provide opportunities for children to extend their school day by taking part in a variety of activities thus supporting their health and well being during the current pandemic crisis. Our PE Curriculum, along with PSHE and science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition. We aim for children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills which will have a positive impact on their future by becoming physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being. This is delivered during Health Awareness Week which focus on cross curricular links with PSHE and Science. ​ Impact In order to increase our children’s cultural capital, we provide opportunities for the children to; ​ Inter sporting competitions such as the Crossbar cup. A range of intra sporting competitions such as Archery, Boccia and New Age Curling. Arthog Outreach where children experience canoeing, caving and climbing. Arthog residential visit where children experience a variety of outdoor activities such as, orienteering, mining, mountain walk as well as team building activities where children focus on problem solving. France residential visit where children experience survival skills, scavenger hunt and take part in Chateaux Olympics. ​ The school achieves well in a number of sporting activities and achieved a School Games Mark Gold Award in recognition of its PE provision and children’s access to competitive sports which the school has maintained since 2017. The use of external agencies such as West End Dance also demonstrates the positive impact of the Pe curriculum. We are now working towards achieving an AFPE Quality Games Mark Award which acknowledges and celebrates outstanding practice and innovation in Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity.

We have, therefore, decided to provide all children with a universal P.E. kit, which will remain in school. Swimming We as a school have recognised the impact of COVID, and subsequent rise in prices of swimming lessons therefore, as well as the free lessons given as part of the curriculum, we also use part of the school funding to give Years 4, 5 and 6 additional swimming lessons. Community Links The school has strong links with Telford Tigers Ice Hockey Team. This enables the school to offer parents and children discounted ticket prices to their matches. Daily Mile Track In line with government initiative Project 60, we decided to equip the school field with a daily mile track. This has been a direct result of the pandemic, as when children were returning to school it was noticeable that physical exercise had been restricted during their time in lockdown. We wanted to tackle this and could not think of a better way than children completing a daily mile. What is the Daily Mile? It is a physical activity which promotes social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing, as well as fitness. It takes place outside in the fresh air during the school day at a time of the teacher’s choosing. Children run in their school clothes and no special kit or equipment is required.

    Maths 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 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 intent for mathematics is to teach a rich, balanced and progressive curriculum that helps children develop an ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately. We believe that equipping our children with fundamental maths skills will pave pathways to creating resilient, forward-thinking learners, who will continue to build upon these skills in every key stage. Through our maths learning, we provide opportunities which cater for the needs of all individuals and sets them up with the necessary skills and knowledge for them to become successful in their future adventures. We aim to prepare them for a successful working life; we incorporate sustained levels of challenge through varied and high quality activities that use maths to reason, problem solve and develop fluent conceptual understanding in each area ​ Implementation Our pupils leave Captain Webb with the knowledge and skills required to be great and confident mathematicians by embedding a curriculum that allows children to better make sense of the world around them by making connections between mathematics and everyday life. We teach the National Curriculum by adopting the White Rose Maths scheme as a planning tool, but we adapt according to the need of our pupils. This adaptation is based upon summative assessment gap information, ongoing formative teaching judgements and pupil feedback. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. ​ Our knowledge-based curriculum introduces new mathematical concepts using a ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approach; enabling all children to experience hands-on learning when discovering new mathematical topics, and allows them to have clear models and images to aid their understanding. Declarative knowledge (arithmetic and basic math skills) is taught daily so that pupils know useful facts and formulae and develop an understanding of relationships and familiar patterns. Procedural knowledge is greatly linked to our calculation policy and enables our pupils to process mathematical information accurately and at speed. Finally, conditional knowledge allows children to apply and embed their knowledge through challenging, rich and sophisticated problems ​ Select to see our long-term and medium term plans below: Read More Nursery - Medium Term Plans Read More Year R - Medium Term Plans Read More Year 1 - Medium Term Plans Year 1 - Long Term Plans Read More Year 2 - Medium Term Plans Read More Year 3 - Medium Term Plans Read More Year 4 - Medium Term Plans Read More Year 5 - Medium Term Plans Read More Year 6 - Medium Term Plans Year 2 - Long Term Plans Year 3 - Long Term Plans Year 4 - Long Term Plans Year 5 - Long Term Plans Year 6 - Long Term Plans Mathmatical Vocabulary Progression Document 2023-25 Key Knowledge Skills - Conditional Knowledge Grids Key Knowledge Skills - Geometry - Position and Direction Key Knowledge Skills - Statistics Key Knowledge Skills Geometry - Properties of shape Key Knowledge Skills - Measure Key Knowledge Skills - Calculation Key Knowledge Skills - Algebra Key Knowledge Skills - FDPRP Key Knowledge Skills - Place Value Key Knowledge Skills - Calculation Impact Mathematics is an important creative discipline that helps children to understand and change the world. This is supported by the opportunities we provide to develop cultural capital. We do this across the curriculum and throughout the school by: Organising events such as STEM Week, allowing pupils to apply their knowledge and skills to cross-curricular concepts or topics Working with global companies such as HSBC to promote financial skills for work, learning and life Giving children the opportunity to use money in real-life contexts (having spending money on trips or going to the local sweet shop in Year 2) Our contextual activities in maths at the end of each unit link to a real-life context which gives children a clear understanding of the importance and purpose of mathematical skills Year 6 undertake an Enterprise project which gives them the opportunity to work with a budget; plan, design and make a product; market a product; engage in the selling process and finally, calculate and understand the importance of profit.

And just as the phonics check has helped more children learn to read, this will ensure more pupils know their times tables.” Nick Gibb, schools minister. In June each year, Year 4 pupils are required to sit a multiplication tables check (MTC). This test is online and will require the children to answer 25 questions on their multiplication knowledge from two to twelves times table. Pupils are given 6 seconds per question with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than 5 minutes. The MTC will establish which pupils’ times table knowledge is at the expected level and will also help identify which pupils are struggling with their times tables so they can get extra support. To help your child prepare for these checks, we progressive introduce multiplication facts from year 1 with the expectation that all facts will be known by the end of Year 4. (See the multiplication Planner). As a school, we also use Time Table Rock Stars. This is an interactive online program which allows your child to practice key facts at speed and allows the teacher to see which facts the children are having difficulty with. Questions on the six, seven, eight, nine and twelve times table are more likely to come up most often and as these are the hardest for most children to learn, it is a good idea to focus on learning these tables with your child. For more information regarding the multiplication tables check, please click the link below. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/multiplication-tables-check-information-for-parents ​ KIRF (Key Instant Recall Facts) At Captain Webb Primary we practise KIRF (Key Instant Recall Facts) daily as part of our Maths Lessons. We strongly believe that knowing these facts is a gateway to become confident mathematicians. The aim is for children to recall these facts instantly as this will not only allow them to access the Maths Curriculum with ease, but also build their sense of number and confidence when working with number. To help your child achieve this crucial fluency target, we ask that you help your child to complete some KIRF based activity at least four times a week as part of our reward homework scheme.
