Programming for Primaries

Go Barefoot this Programming for Primaries week!

Three fun-filled activities to transform your computing classroom.  

Barefoot Computing empowers primary school teachers across the UK to deliver the computing curriculum brilliantly with free workshops, helpful online guides and free engaging lessons. Barefoot is on the side of teachers; helping them inspire pupils to think, learn and thrive in a digital world.

Barefoot was set up in 2014 to prepare primary school teachers for the changing computing curriculum by BCS, The Chartered Institute of IT and their Computing at School network.


In a world where technology is advancing at lightning speed, it's crucial for teachers to stay up to speed. Established in 2014, to support teachers through education reforms, and the introduction of computing to the National Curriculum, Barefoot is currently celebrating ten years of workshops and fun, free resources – created by teachers, for teachers.  


Barefoot is committed to empowering teachers and inspiring students to thrive in a digital world. Our efforts have reached millions of pupils and tens of thousands of teachers, making a significant impact on computing education in primary schools nationwide. 


But the work doesn't stop there. As we look to the future, Barefoot and Computing at School (CAS) are focused on addressing the broader societal issues surrounding technology and exploring how computing education can be part of the solution. It's a daunting task, but one that is essential for shaping a more digitally literate and responsible generation!
