What do we want?

We want the Purple Mash software because there is a lot more to computing than coding and Purple Mash provides this broad computing curriculum. 

Moreover, it comes with free CPD, it cuts down all lesson planning time by around 30 minutes per staff member per week and it works well on Chromebooks, iPads, desktops, laptops and tablets.

We want Purple Mash because:

  • Its '2Code' module takes the mystery out of coding.
  • It provides access to step-by-step lessons with lesson plans and tutorial videos to take children's learning from simple algorithms and block-based programming, all the way to text-based coding.
  • It enables positive online behaviours, providing the safe way for children to learn to email, blog and express themselves online.

1 x 5-year licence @ £3,800 - making the cost around £1.50 per pupil per year
