This is a creative educational website for Pupils and a cross-curricular resource covering most subjects such as Science, Art, History and Geography. As well as using it in school, Pupils can access Purple Mash from home. TT Rock stars is a well embedded platform to support the learning of times tables both at home and at school.
Online Safety is a strong part of the learning in computing and Pupils learn how to look after themselves in a virtual world and identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns. This also links to our 1Decision PHSE curriculum on computer safety.
