Purple Mash and Ofsted's High Quality Computing Curriculum: Day 1

May 24, 2022

On 16th May, Ofsted published their research review into the computing curriculum, to ‘identify factors that can contribute to high-quality school computing curriculums, assessment, pedagogy and systems. We’ve taken a close look at the report and identified how Purple Mash meets each of those factors, and throughout this week we're posting a series of blog posts outlining exactly how it does this. Each daily blog will cover 2-3 of the factors in depth, looking at what the report says and highlighting where Purple Mash supports them.

Today, we start by looking at teacher technical and pedagogical content knowledge of computing, as well as the curriculum structure: called the pillars of progression within this report.
