Websites

Our approach 

Our school websites are bright, clean and attractive.  We emphasise simple, easy-to-use layout, we remove unnecessary clutter and do all we can to make accessing your school site a pleasurable experience.  We encourage you to include good, relevant photos of school life, and we make it easy to add your own in the future.

Our sites are simple to manage.  As part of our design and build process, we include training for the people in your school who will be most involved in the site's upkeep.  Generally, we find that a two-hour session is enough to get people started.

Take a good look at our work

We are proud of the websites we have designed and built.  We work hard with each school to make sure they are happy that the site reflects their special qualities and ethos.  Once the site is handed over to the school, it starts to take on a life of its own, but we are still very much involved in keeping it fresh and new.  Here are some that will give you an idea of what we do:

The build process

Our build process generally takes between 6 to 8 weeks.  During this period we meet with you to discuss your requirements and look at other school sites for ideas about content, structure, colours and layout.  At this meeting, we also agree a "go live" date to work towards.  As we work on the site you can view progress and contact us to suggest changes, improvements or corrections.  If you have photographs that you think might be suitable, let us have them and we will make suggestions based on our experience.  When you are happy with the site, you can let your parents know and we will unveil the school's new web presence.

How to get started

Once you have had a look at some of the school sites,we have created, download our flyer and signup sheet (see below), which will give you most of the details you need.  If you need any more information, please contact us in the normal way.

Statutory requirements for school websites

Your school website is there to help parents, pupils and the community know more about who you are and what you do.  However, there are important statutory requirements that you need to be aware of.  These rules can be found in two DfE web pages, namely "What maintained schools must publish online" and "What academies should publish online".  

Ongoing training and support

Our pricing includes initial training for the staff who will be contributing to the site.  We concentrate on the most important skills, in particular creating and editing articles, managing downloads (e.g. newsletters), the calendar and photographs

Once you have started to get used to running your site, we also offer workshop sessions which enable you to improve your skills and explore new areas, so that you can keep your site fresh and interesting.
