Research from Ipsos MORI and BT found that 84% of teachers who have accessed Barefoot materials now understand computational thinking, compared to just 57% of their peers who hadn’t been involved.
Barefoot supports primary educators with the confidence, knowledge, skills and resources to teach computer science. Resources aligned to the curricula for all UK nations. This includes FREE high-quality lesson plans and local CPD workshops, all designed to help teachers gain confidence in bringing computer science to life in the classroom.

Future learning have created a classroom resource like know other, that gives children a 8min 30sec HIIT (High intensity interval training) session that also helps them learn their times table, while covering PE, science and PSHE objectives. In creating this resource, we considered a lot of the barriers a teacher faces when it comes to getting children moving during the school day. The workout is classroom based and requires the children to push their chairs in and the teacher to press play. Being aware of the importance of data for head teachers, we’ve also built into the resource the function of recording each time an individual class logs in, giving a great source of evidence for showing what your school is doing to meet government requirements laid out in the childhood obesity plan. With the introduction of children being assessed on their knowledge of times tables we have created an easy fix that can be implemented immediately.
Guzled is an online resource bank for Physics teachers, offering a range of instantly downloadable resources covering the whole IB and A Level specification for every examination board in the UK. We are ahead of the game on every curriculum reform and are prepared for the changes arriving in September 2015.
Sally Weatherly founded Guzled with the aim of helping physics teachers of all levels, whether Guzled resources are a starting point for a lesson plan or a complete scheme of work for the whole department.
“It all began when I was Head of Physics at a leading independent school and was writing my department’s schemes of work and Moodle courses. I needed to provide structure for the more experienced teachers in my department, but something deeper for the NQTs. I needed something that was educationally sound, extremely high quality and really easy for the teachers to use.
I have been a teacher for 12 years and I know that I am a good one! I knew I could develop a resource bank that is just what teachers need and want. I have been delighted with how quickly the Guzled brand has grown and how many teachers we have helped along the way.”
