Bring coding to life
Barclays Code Playground
Explore our new coding curriculum
Using our range of resources including lesson plans, interactive videos, teacher guides and workbooks, we’ve created a coding learning journey in line with the curriculum to help you bring coding to life with your pupils. At the start of each term, we’ll release new sessions for you to choose from or work through with your class.
Throughout the school year we’ll be hosting some live coding sessions for you to book your class onto; you’ll find the dates for these sessions in the additional resources section below. We’d love to see you on the sessions but if you can’t make it, we’ve got some pre-recorded videos you can use in class to code along to instead.

Welcome to Code Playground
We at Code Playground believe that building a solid foundation in coding will help prepare children for an increasingly digital future.
Since 2018, we've worked with schools across the country to help students and teachers get the most out of computing sessions. Coding isn’t just a great skill for future employment opportunities, it also develops problem solving techniques, encourages creativity and collaboration through group projects. Coding also has exciting avenues in science, art, design and many more areas.
Everything we offer is free and available for everyone to use in schools, at home or anywhere you choose.
Join our interactive live classes, set up a Code Playground club, use our online resources, access detailed lesson plans or book a school visit with one of our Barclays Digital Eagles. Here you'll find everything you need to bring the valuable skill of coding to life.
My daughter joined your coding session this week, it was the first time we’ve ever done an online lesson, and it was fantastic! Winnie was interested from the start and remained engaged for the whole hour. The instructions were easy to follow, she was confident coding along without supervision.
Code Playground is all about offering the support you need. If you have a question, comment or suggestion, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
