St Teresa's Catholic Primary School


At St. Teresa's, we teach computing objectives through a scheme called 'Purple Mash.'

The Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work is a powerful comprehensive resource aligned to the National Curriculum and EYFS Framework. The Scheme of Work is intended to facilitate teachers in achieving the very best outcomes for pupils, regardless of starting points. It exposes pupils to a wide variety of skills, experiences and poignant real-life scenarios which supports the notion of Cultural Capital; providing the foundations that lead to well-rounded global citizens. It contains everything that is needed to deliver inspiring and engaging lessons whilst allowing for the flexibility to meet individual school needs. 



Below is an overview of the areas of computing your child will study within their year groups. As a school, we follow the mixed age rolling programme which can be found in the document below.
