Welcome to The Barefoot Project

The Barefoot Computing project is helping teachers to teach the computer science elements of the new primary computing curriculum. We are developing free high-quality, practical resources and computer science workshops to support primary school teachers in England

The project is funded by the Department for Education and is being run by the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and supported by Computing at School.
