Who is the Five Spires Computer Scientist?

We strive for all of our pupils to leave Five Spires Academy being digitally literate by continuously developing their thinking and creativity to understand the ever-evolving technology in their world.

Our teaching of computer science develops pupils’ understanding of algorithms, programs, and logical reasoning to design, write and debug programs which achieve particular objectives. The children will be taught to strategically solve problems and use logical reasoning to explain how simple algorithms work, whilst also being able to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.

Through our computer science curriculum, pupils build up a body of key knowledge about e-safety which supports them to stay safe online whilst using technology respectfully and responsibly. Our pupils will be taught how to recognise unacceptable content and behaviour and will be able to identify a range of ways to report their

Pupils at Five Spires Academy will be taught to use technology to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content. They will develop an understanding of how to use search engines effectively, appreciating how results are selected and ranked. Throughout all Key Stages, pupils will be taught and encouraged to select and use a variety of technology, design software and create a range of programs, systems and content which achieve a given goal.

At Five Spires Academy, we strive for all pupils to recognise common uses of information technology beyond school life. We plan a range of experiences, set in meaningful contexts to support our pupils to in developing their understanding of computer networks and enable them to recognise opportunities for collaboration and communication.
