In fact research of 1,000 five to 11-year-olds and their parents, carried out by Ocado Technology has revealed that 65% of parents are unaware that their primary school children will be learning to code at school.
Why is this surprising? By the time a child starts school parents can’t look beyond free babysitting from a school. Clearly the 35% that do know of this are the lucky ones with kind grandparents providing free childcare.
In similar research when asked what they did at school today 98% of kids said “nuffin.'”
