This inaugural issue of Sapientia is led by Miles Berry, Professor of Computing Education at the University of Roehampton, and a contributor to a wide range of computing projects, including the computing programmes of study in the National Curriculum, Barefoot Computing and Switched On Computing.

Berry provides a debrief on the latest Ofsted Research Review on Computing, highlighting its challenges and opportunities, and perhaps most importantly, providing a number of positive conclusions drawn from the review and including Ofsted observations that Computing should be an entitlement for all up to the end of Key Stage 4, deserves the curriculum time needed to do it justice, and that Computing teachers should be entitled to subject specific professional development.

This is an Ofsted review, but with the weight of concern carried by the teaching profession about how Computing can be addressed in schools that are frequently short of resources, it could also be a welcome platform for development.
