Computing at Inspire
At Inspire Academy we have chosen to follow the Rising Stars Computing programme of study.
The Award-winning ‘Switched on Computing’ supports teachers of all levels of experience to deliver the requirements of the new programme of study in an exciting and engaging way. Please see the long term plan for an outline of the ‘Switched on Computing’ units that are taught in each year.
Computers and other technological aids are used throughout the school. Computing skills are taught as a discrete subject and as a means of supporting other areas of the curriculum. The children are encouraged to communicate ideas and information in a variety of forms, where appropriate, using equipment and computer software to enhance their learning. Children have the opportunity to learn how to word process, use a desktop publishing programme, incorporate graphics, use and create a database, explore adventure games and use floor robots.
