I can’t download resources and PDFs, what do I do?

This is our most frequently-asked question and is caused by some browsers’ security settings blocking downloads from sites that are not authorised.  It is usually a very quick fix and you will then be able to download resources from Kapow Primary.

The instructions below are specific to a Chrome browser, however the steps will be similar across all other browsers.  You will be able to search online for help to unblock our resources for your particular set up.

Chrome (Windows)

 

  1. Click the “Customize and control Google Chrome” menu (the three horizontal dots in the top right corner of the window).
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Show advanced settings (found at the bottom).
  4. Under Privacy, click the Content Settings button.
  5. To enable pop-ups on specific sites, check Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended) and click Exceptions or add a site in the Allow list. In this case add www.kapowprimary.com.

What does your membership of Kapow Primary include?

As a member, you will have full access to hundreds of tried and tested Lesson Plans, Schemes of Work, Demo Videos and other teaching and classroom resources. School subscribers can choose from any combination or number of subjects they wish to access.

Lesson Plans

Each Lesson Plan is written by a subject specialist and contains all the support and guidance you would expect to help you deliver an outstanding lesson. Lesson Plans include clear assessment guidelines and ideas for differentiation.

Our Lesson Plans are carefully thought through to ensure your pupils make progress in each subject. We suggest an order to teach the lessons, but you can easily teach the lessons in a different order if you prefer or simply ‘dip in and out’ to blend our lessons with your own scheme.

All of our Lesson Plans are editable, allowing you to tailor them to the specific needs of your children or your school’s curriculum.

Lesson Plans focus on developing skills and concepts and are usually taught in the context of a popular topic. It’s easy though to adapt the Lesson Plans to other topics and contexts if you prefer.

Teacher Videos

Members can access hundreds of unique Teacher Videos specially-filmed to demonstrate key teaching and learning points. They provide real-life demonstrations, examples, analogies and tips from subject-specialist teachers to use in the classroom. As you watch each short video while planning for a lesson, you will develop subject knowledge and earn CPD points.

Classroom Resources

Membership benefits include hundreds of whiteboard friendly presentations, printable worksheets, ready-made templates, step-by-step instructions for practical activities and high quality photos of selected artwork. This means you spend less time getting the basics ready and can focus the time you have saved addressing the specific needs of your children.

 

Why not have a look at a few example lessons for yourself?

How much does it cost?

School members can choose from any combination of subjects. The more subjects you choose to buy, the less each subject costs. School membership covers an unlimited number of users in your school.

School membership costs as little as £150 plus VAT and provides an unlimited number of logins for your school staff. See school pricing here.

Individual teachers can buy a personal membership that provides access for one person only to all Kapow Primary subjects.

How long does a Subscription last?

A standard Kapow Primary subscription lasts for one year, but we’d be happy to discuss multi-year terms if required. Please Contact Us to discuss this further.

What does a trial include?

You will have full access to the website, but we limit the number of Lesson Plans and other classroom resources that you can download during the free trial. The trial lasts for one week.

I’ve just upgraded my subscription and cannot access the content for the new subjects

Try logging out and clear your browser (CTRL +F5) as your computer might have remembered your previous settings. Contact Us if you are still having problems.

The videos are not playing

We have found that a small number of schools’ security systems block our videos. If this happens, you need to ask your IT department to mark Kapow Primary as a safe site.

Why won’t the links on my lesson plan work?

Apologies! At the time of creating our resources, and periodically, we check all the links. Sometimes a third-party may remove certain content, so the links will no longer work. If you Contact Us to let us know which links aren’t working and what lesson you were looking at, we’ll get them updated for you.

How do I pay?

Schools and individual teachers can pay with a card through Stripe, a secure payment service, available on our site.

If you are buying a school subscription and prefer to pay by invoice, we will send this to the finance contact at your school, and they will be able to pay by bank transfer or cheque.

I’d like a receipt for my purchase

Not a problem, get in touch with our finance team via finance@kapowprimary.com and they’ll be happy to help.

Can schools reclaim the VAT?

UK schools should be able to reclaim the VAT on a Kapow Primary subscription and we will send you a VAT receipt to enable you to do so.
