Is your school website easy to update and use?

school website
A school website enables you to share all of your achievements and hard work with parents, governors, pupils and teachers, 24 hours a day 365 days a year. A good school website with the correct quality content is like having an extra staff member on hand to answer questions that any prospective parents or the community as a whole would like answering. Freeing up valuable staff resource.

But most websites are difficult to update and require a working knowledge of ICT – Not ours! We use a content management system which allows all members of staff to easily update your school website with recent information on the curriculum, newsletters, staff information or any number of pages from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection.

We can also help you to design a website that you and your school can be proud of. A site that represents the vision, mission and ethos of the school, and provides the best impression to prospective parents and inspectors alike.

Our websites are easy to use too as we pay particular attention when we design your school website to usability and user experience. Why not talk to us about our easily updatable websites which allow you and your staff to get on with more teaching and spend a lot less time updating your website.

Below is a typical number of pages which you may like to have on your new school website. Some may not be appropriate right now – but others may be there which would be useful to your staff, parents and pupils which you hadn’t thought of in the past. If there are pages you’d like which aren’t in this list, do not worry. We will piece together all of your requirements during our early consultations.
