Purple Mash and the new academic year

Sept. 1, 2021

As the new academic year begins, we wanted to share with you some useful links we know will help you and your colleagues get started. In the post we'll cover account set up for Purple Mash admins, including data syncing and adding new classes; plus we'll share with you useful tools and teacher resources to help you feel prepared at the start of the new year.

1) Setting up or updating your account

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, please register for our webinar on 13th July.

2) Login cards and parent letters

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.
