It’s a really exciting time to be a primary school teacher. Don’t be daunted by the changes in the move from ICT to computing. Rather, see this as an opportunity to develop your own knowledge about computing and to learn to program, if you’ve never had the chance before. Although this might sound like hard work, it’s actually great fun. You’ll find that you make better use of the technology you have at home and in school, and also that you start to think a bit differently, looking at systems and problems in the same way a computer scientist does.

“I think the primary guidance is a fantastic document that will enable primary teachers to gain a better understanding of the new curriculum and I particularly love the section on assessment” (Deborah Ball, Dosthill Primary School)
