Barefoot's journey

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, with funding from The Department for Education.

Between 2015 and 2021, BT and Computing at School partnered to continue the programme, reaching 3 million pupils and over 85,000 teachers in the majority of primary schools across the UK.

Computing at School continue to develop ambitious plans to meet the needs of primary school teachers and their pupils, including addressing some of the big challenges for society’s relationship with IT and exploring how computing education is part of the solution.
