Kapow Primary
Allen Tsui

Subject lead for Computing

Used Kapow Primary daily for 1-2 years

May 2022

Kapow Primary has been a near perfect platform of support to me as a fledging subject leader for Computing. The Scheme of Work for Computing is highly organised and very well structured which for many schools who might lack the subject specialist expert knowledge need to be able to effectively offer or support teaching and learning in a subject vital to future proofing the citizens of tomorrow. The resources published by Kapow Primary do still need on occasion to be adapted to suit the needs of the learners and the hardware or software systems that schools have access to. But this is not unusual to any scheme of work published by other educational resource providers. Credit where credit is due too for the team at Kapow as despite the National Centre for Computing Education free offer of resources and lesson plans, Kapow Primary resources are much more teacher and learner friendly and requires less previous or specialist knowledge to teach with the material. As somebody who does have that extensive specialist subject knowledge, Kapow Primary has been a godsend in helping me brigade and marshal my thoughts and overall teaching strategy so well worth the investment.

Allen Tsui found Kapow Primary:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The demands and expectations on school's to be as transparent as possible with how the teaching and learning is organised has bcome a real focus in the way schools are rated on their performance. Kapow has been brilliant in supporting me in my role as subject specialist for Computing. I have the subject knowledge but the way my thought process works means I really need the help to have my ideas effectively marshalled. The subject expertise in Computing from Sarah Vaughan, Cat Lamin and Donna Rawling who themselves are still "in the field" is second to none. As I've said before on social media, it's like I'm sharing a staffroom with them!
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It is the first proper year I've made use of Kapow Primary. I had a subscription which I bought personally in 2020-21. The school I work for has bought me the current 2021-22 subscription. The knowledge capture quiz format and the way the suggested activities are scaffolded means that it is easier for me to be able to measure or assess attainment although I have a personal sense that my senior colleagues expect some sort of measure of attainment to be quantifiable in a similar way to the end of KS2 National Test scores.

I was only recently introduced to Kapow and while I was aware of it I hadn't really spent the time to take an in-depth look at what it offers to both experienced music teachers and to teachers lacking in confidence in music delivery. I'm really impressed. The lesson plans are clear and easy to follow. At the start of each lesson the short teacher's video explains and reinforces basic information, how to explain the terminology and often how to teach it. The safe links are supplied, the slides are all set up to make life easy for the teacher. As an experienced music teacher, (advisor, consultant and BA & PGCE music education lecturer) I cannot recommend Kapow's music programme highly enough.Our teachers already using Kapow music are enthusiastic and enjoying their music lessons, the children are motivated, engaged and learning about music in an active and focussed way. Well done Kapow!!

Reply from Kapow Primary:Hi Ruth, Thank you very much for the feedback! We are delighted to hear that you've been enjoying our resources and that it's having a positive impact on your teachers and pupils. Happy teaching! The Kapow Primary team

KAPOW has supported our school's journey in art and DT. We love the videos for the teachers and children. The range of artists, craft makers and designers is brilliant. My workload as subject lead is lighter. KAPOW supports non specilast teachers to deliver a full and creative curriculum. Thank you

Fantastic resources, especially for those not confident in teaching particular subjects. I wish Kapow would allow schools to use their videos to share with home learners (during closures) so that we could continue to teach the curriculum

Reply from Kapow Primary:Hi Nicola Louise, We're really happy that you like our resources. We are sharing pupil videos during the lockdown with our customers and we have lots of reports of how much pupils are enjoying watching them at home. We are sorry you haven't seen our communications about this. Please email us at enquiries@kapowprimary.com for a request form and we'll be able to get this sorted for you!

As a class teacher new to year six this year , it has been fantastic to have Kapow’s computing scheme to ensure coverage of skills at an appropriate level for the children . After contacting Kapow with some questions about the sessions, I heard back from the team quickly and was put in contact with the content developer for computing. Not only was I talked through each of the sessions but plans were updated and additional resources added to make the plans easier to follow. The discussion I had with the content developer greatly improved my knowledge of the subject and I now feel more confident to deliver these sessions to our students. Thank you Kapow.

As a school we have been using KAPOW since the start of September 2020. The feedback from our teachers at the end of Autumn 1: 'The lesson plans are detailed. It is very easy to follow and the teacher videos helpful.' Many of our teachers have struggled before to deliver the Computing Curriculum. As the Lead of Computing I have found the Essential Subject Materials extremely helpful .

Reply from Kapow Primary:Hi Rosie, Thank you so much for your feedback! We're really glad that both you and your colleagues have been finding our scheme of work and additional resources helpful. Happy teaching! The Kapow Primary team

Although we have only used the 7 day trials at present, we have been blown away by the resources for art and music! They provide a list of resources you will need, learning objectives, success criteria, teacher videos, pupil videos, everything you need for the lesson including key questions, differentiation AND assessment! The best thing is that lessons are produced by experts in their field - so you know you can rely on it! The only draw back is the pricing, which is based on school size, so when you are the specialist teacher who is the only one teaching that subject across the school it becomes expensive. We would consider buying it ourselves but our subject budget wouldn't cover it. Maybe a 'specialists membership' would be something to think of for the future! Thank you Kapow for what we have been able to use so far!

Reply from Kapow Primary:Hi Sue and Vicki, We're delighted that you've been enjoying the resources our specialists have created! All the best, The Kapow Primary team

I'm loving many of the the music, art and pshce ideas, but I'm finding geography can be a bit too much and a little advanced for my year 1s so are having to heavily adapt it.

Reply from Kapow Primary:Hi Anna, Thank you for your feedback, however we do not offer geography at present. We may be doing so in the future, though, so watch this space! Best, The Kapow Primary team

Used Kapow Primary for 6 Months (Pre-COVID19)

Sep 2020

It is an excellent resource - everything you need has been considered.

Mike Watson found Kapow Primary:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The clear plans and progression I have used especially for MFL and Computing teaching have been invaluable. Children learn the skills, and vocabulary through interesting and engaging lessons which work straight off the shelf or with the ability to adapt and personalise.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Full Schemes of Learning for a wide range of foundation subjects allow you are a teacher to have a firm and clear starting point for some of the more tricky and specialist subjects. Everything come with expert teachers delivering mini-CPD to support you in the delivery.
  • Not saves school money
    It is expensive. But, there is a lot to it. If you are wanting to by a single product to cover the curriculum areas it provides - you are onto a winner! RSE is now part of the product too and with that becoming statutory in January, i can see it being very popular.

Kapow! scratches the itches that some online resource providers can't reach! A wide range of subjects - those fiddly foundation ones like Computing, Music, Art and French - all with a fantastic set of plans, resources, presentations, ideas and especially the expert training videos. My favourite is the French, can't speak it? Don't worry all the pronunciation and vocabulary is there for you. You want computing, plugged and unplugged? Kapow! has your back. All organised by Key Stage and Age, all planned clearly for progression through the year groups and all with the support from leading teachers. Honestly - it has been a life saver for me and my colleagues!

We are going to begin using Kapow for French, Wellbeing and RSE next term. Like many others, any queries are dealt with very quickly and we are really excited to using the resources next term. Some of our staff have trialled Wellbeing lessons with their 'Bubbles' over the last couple of weeks and have been impressed so far. Thank you Kapow

I was having some difficulty in accessing my account so filled in the enquiry form on Kapow website. Within half an hour, I had an email from Fahim asking if he could call to help sort it. He managed to find the issue, sort it and set my account up within 20 minutes, waiting on the phone until I logged in to make sure it had worked. Really friendly and helpful - thank you!

Compton & Up Marden C of E Primary School, UK

Used kapow-primary for 3 months

Mar 2019

Very good but maybe not for everyone as some teachers like to create their own lessons from scratch. Also doesn't cover EYFS.

Michael found kapow-primary:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The activities and resources are far more up to date than the previous scheme the school had been using
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Some staff were very reticent about the Computing Curriculum and this has made them much more confident.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The lessons on the site have everything you need to run them.
  • Not significantly saves school money
    It was a new payment in Autumn 2 to join and we had already paid for our previous scheme. Kapow does involve less worksheet printing that we have seen so far.
