As the new academic year approaches, we wanted to share with you some useful links we know will help you and your colleagues get started in 2022/23. In the post we'll cover account set up for Purple Mash admins, including data syncing and adding new classes; plus, we'll share useful tools and teacher resources to help you feel prepared at the start of the new year.
Purple Mash admins, make sure your school account is linked to your pupil data (MIS). Manually updating pupils, classes and teachers each year is a thing of the past. MIS integration is GDPR compliant and free for existing users.
If you don’t wish to, or are unable to use the quick sync account update via your school data base (MIS), then we can also guide you through how to do this. Simply register for our webinar on Tuesday 12th July for expert guidance and a chance to ask questions. And if you can’t make this, keep an eye out for the recording, which will be made available on our Purple Mash webinar playlist soon afterwards.
You can print login cards, with personalised login details for each pupil to make logging in from home or in class quick and easy.
If you use the Parent Portal, you can also print parent letters with their dedicated parent code to allow parents/carers to gain insight into their child's learning on Purple Mash.
To print login cards and parent letters, navigate to the admin settings on your profile.
A copy of the parents’ letter is also available within the new look Teachers area, under the Supporting Parents tab
The Teachers area contains a range of useful resources and links to help you get the most out of Purple Mash. Under the Professional Development tab, you’ll find great help to prepare for the coming year, including:

Whether you're starting a new role or are a more experienced subject lead looking for additional support, our subject toolkits are perfect for subject leaders looking to keep on top of things in 2022/23.
They contain a range of practical and useful documents which make auditing, action planning, reviewing provision and developing you as a leader a lot less onerous. You can access all the Subject Leader Toolkits except PE from the Leadership tab of the Teachers area. The PE Leader’s Toolkit is supported by Striver, our PE and wellbeing offering, and is available to download for free.
The Teachers area is packed full of helpful tools and guides. Under the Planning tab you’ll find the complete Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work for EYFS to Year 6; a powerful, comprehensive resource aligned to the National Curriculum and EYFS Framework.
