Help your child get coding

Barclays Code Playground

What makes coding so important for your children?

Coding is the hidden language behind everything digital. It’s how we communicate with our computers, smartphones, and household tech, and how they communicate with one another. It drives the software in the countless things we use every day. As the digital world expands, and we become more reliant on it, coding will become an increasingly important factor in our children’s future career prospects.

Coding is now also part of the national curriculum, but we believe learning to navigate the world of coding shouldn’t simply be a mandatory lesson. We at Code Playground believe it should be about inspiring children to explore the digital world, and have fun in the process. By doing so, we hope to support their coding education and give them a head start on their dream jobs and hobbies in tech.

So let’s get started.

How can you get involved?

Fun activities

Discover the fun side of coding, have a go at some of our exciting interactive challenges with your child or students.

Video sessions

Learn at your own pace, pause, and revisit points until you’re a pro. Watch one of our fun video sessions. We’ve got challenges, bite size activities, and Code Playground Live.

Live sessions

Throughout the year we run a variety of term-time activities suitable for school and home-schooling, as well as afterschool and holiday sessions.

Tell your school

Help bring the benefits of coding into your child’s school. Provide us with their school name and we’ll email their teachers to discuss Code Playground sessions with one of our Digital Eagles.
