Experiences of the Computing Curriculum in a UK Primary School

Dalian Adofo BA (Hons), PGCE, MA


The focus of this study was to explore how teachers and pupils had adapted and responded to the implementation of these changes to their curriculum. Conducting it at primary school level was particularly important as it had been one of the main areas of contention in the consultation process as some felt such changes would be especially daunting and largely inappropriate.

The study was undertaken against a backdrop of national curriculum changes, three years after the implementation of Computing as a curriculum subject. The study was initiated to explore the impact of these changes on teaching and learning in a primary school.
