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:






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.

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.
