Barefoot in 4 easy steps


The Barefoot programme helps support primary teachers with understanding and teaching computing.

This is a core part of our commitment to Tech Literacy, enabling young people to explore, discover and embrace an increasingly digital future.

Since its launch over two years ago, Barefoot has gone from strength to strength, with the latest results including:

  • 35,000 primary teachers supported

  • 130,000 downloads of resources

  • 1 million children reached

  • Teachers over 95% more confident to teach ‘computational thinking’ after a workshop

If you’re yet to get involved, follow our four simple steps and go Barefoot!
