To help you with this, we compiled a list of the best School Jotter apps available in the market that really help students with their everyday learning as well as schools to promote themselves to parents.

Website of the Week – Rogiet Primary School

By Cieran Douglass in Website of the Week | Tagged school website, school website design, wales, website of the week
This week’s website of the week comes to us from Monmouthshire in South Wales, and it’s a cracking one. Rogiet Primary School (Ysgol Gynradd Rogiet) had their School Jotter website launch last week, and after seeing it it was really a no-brainer who our website of the week would be.

Rogiet have managed to strike the perfect balance between something bold, colourful and child friendly, and something that parents can use and find useful. It’s easy to navigate with its large tiles and buttons, while the big, high-resolution images really help to show off what the school is all about. Read More →

Newsletters as file downloads

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training | Tagged files, jotter tips, newsletters
While School Jotter does offer Newsletter capabilities, we appreciate that, for those who want a more rich and designed experience, you can't beat PDF downloads. Often these are created to send home with pupils, with digital copies uploaded to the website. The latest release of School Jotter makes it easy to present these in a sensible and attractive way, rather than just a string of links!

To start with, go to where you want the newsletters to be embedded (we recommend a dedicated page for this but you can do it anywhere) and enter Edit mode, then click Insert Item Read More →

Another outstanding school with a great-looking website! This week we are looking at the website created by Woodfield Primary School based in Wigan.

I really like the overall design and the layout of this website. Not only it looks good, but it’s also very easy to navigate and to find the information that you need. The white background throughout the website makes it look very clean. Light green and blue colours add a nice welcoming touch to the website.

The homepage features events calendar, live Twitter feed and latest school news. These are great tools for engaging with everyone visiting the

This week we are looking at the website created by St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School based in Shipley, West Yorkshire. It’s great to see that the school has recently redesigned their website.

There is a nice welcoming message on the homepage that introduces the school and its Catholic values. The homepage also includes useful features like information regarding the latest events and live Twitter feed to help everyone stay up to date with important things happening at school.

The school website is well designed and it’s easy to navigate. There are main contact details, navigation and language bars at the top

Using timed content to create a term’s worth of homework in an evening

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training | Tagged excercises, features, homeworke, jotter learn, jotter tips

Coming soon


Last week we showed you how to use Exercises in Learn to create and manage homework assignments and more. These are a great tool, and using some basic built-in Jotter functionality, we'll soon be able to extend it to make it even better. Note that, while you can set this system up now, it won't be enabled fully until an update in a couple of weeks, which we'll make you aware of!

First of all, for this to work best we recommend setting up a dedicated Learn page for homework and assignments - if all the objects are on Read More →

We’ve got another great website of the week! This week we are looking at the website created by St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School based in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Firstly, I really like the website design. The layout of the website makes it look modern and professional. Yellow and blue colours dominating the website make it look child-friendly and they go well with the colours of school uniforms. There is a nice welcoming message on the homepage which introduces the school and gives an idea about some of the school values. The welcoming message appears on the top of some images
