Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Computing and Information Technology

Wilstead introduced the Purple Mash Computing Curriculum in 2020, following recommendations by other primary schools and educational leaders. 


Why Purple Mash?

We introduced Purple Mash at a time when we were all discovering the importance of remote access to teaching and learning opportunities! The vibrant design and wide range of activities and resources quickly became familiar to the Wilstead children who often complete extended learning in other subjects using this platform.


The Computing programme of study follows the National Curriculum expectations.

Values Based Education

The values of Communication, Respect and Curiosity have particular weight within the computing curriculum, which supports children to work together, respect each others' contributions, thoughts and emotions and enhance researching skills and abilities.


Children also have the opportunity to discuss their understanding of the values of TeamworkFriendship and Accountability as they learn more about coding, emails and online safety.
