At Blakesley CE to deliver our Computing curriculum, we use a specially designed programme called ‘Purple Mash’ which supports the school with the delivery of high-quality computing lessons from EFYS all the way through to Year 6. It equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and potentially change the world. Children have opportunities to develop the principles of information and computation and put this knowledge into practice, increasingly through programming.
A carefully selected and sequenced progression, incorporating key declarative and procedural knowledge, enables pupils to become increasingly digitally literate and safety aware. This includes being able to express themselves and develop ideas through information and communication technology. The curriculum has been designed to engage, to inspire children and to encourage them to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Online safety is regularly revisited each year too.
