Jotter Tips: Three Different Ways of Adding Documents

By Hannah Coster in Development
All of our School Jotter users know that you can add documents to your Jotter site, but not all of them know the three different ways you can display them. It’s important to keep your documents up to date, and it’s also important to add them in the most appropriate format.

Whether you’ve got a long list of files you want users to download, a document you want to display directly on the website or just one you want to add as a link, School Jotter allows you to display your documents in three different ways.

Storing information securely is a key concern for schools. For that reason, we you might find it useful to have a private area on your website for governors, teachers or OFSTED.

School Jotter makes it easy to add and customise access to your own private area, requiring a login for users to access it.

1 - Firstly, make sure you have a user login set up. You can do this by going to the ‘admin’ section on your jotter site and clicking ‘add user’.

Fill out the details there with whatever you want the user to log in with. Check Read More →

Bridging the Gap with Jotter Mobile

Jotter Mobile app on Smartphones

 

It’s a sad fact that teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep parents engaged with what’s going on at school. Parents’ ‘go-go’ lifestyles mean they don’t have time to visit the school’s website for the latest news and announcements. Hard copies of newsletters often get lost or thrown out.

What does this mean?


  • Meetings are missed
  • Permission slips never get signed
  • Children are dropped off when school is shut for training
Fortunately, our new Jotter Mobile smartphone app is now bridging the gap between parents and schools. Free for parents to download via the App Store and Google Play, Jotter Read More →

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 →

Website of the week – Woodfield Primary School

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
