Purple Mash Support

 

Support in the form of videos can be found by clicking on the links below. 

 

A printable copy is at the bottom of the page should you need it. Children in school have already been taught how to access the activities set by their teacher and so should be familiar with this. Please note the home screen on your computer will look slightly different as we are using the most up-to-date version, but all menu items still work in the same way. 

 

2dos and feedback can also be found by using the Alerts tab on the menu which looks like this:-   

 

For further support please contact your class teacher in the first instance. Passwords can be found on the parent letter that was sent when we registered your child or inside their planners. (Inside home learning folders for Nursery and Reception)

 

A video to support parents to access the parent portal.  A user guide with video links to support children in accessing their learning tasks, including how to submit work to the teacher for marking.
