One the best features of Much Wenlock Primary School’s website is their Mail on Monday section. The downloadable PDF newsletter has an update of activities that have happened within the school, useful diary dates and after-school club information.

Many schools update their website regularly with news - but with Much Wenlock, parents know the website will get updated the same day every week. Brilliant for parent/school engagement!

By Webanywhere in Website of the Week | Tagged dunsville, jotter, primary, school, website, week
Dunsville Primary School near Doncaster chose a bright, colourful theme for their School Jotter website. It means visitors have a fun and engaging introduction to the school. In fact, the School Jotter website is so appealing, other schools often reference it when their own School Jotter websites are being designed!

The colours and the design of the Dunsville website echoes the content of the website: basically, it’s all about the children. From the uploaded photographs of pupils’ efforts in the Children’s Work section, to a downloadable copy of their child protection proceedures, it’s clear that Dunsville has the pupils’ interests Read More →

Your school website is the perfect opportunity to create multimedia activities for children - and Hawes Side Academy’s website, www.hawes-side.org.uk, is a great example of this.

The Blackpool academy’s School Jotter website has everything you’d expect - there’s a calendar of term dates and events, uniform details, all the most recent newsletters uploaded - but Hawes Side have taken it one step further. The Uniform page, for example, has a video hosted by pupils, explaining why they should wear uniform and how it should look.

The School Blog page, too - where teachers have uploaded videos of school activities - is Read More →

School Jotter: By Those Who Love It

By Webanywhere in Customer Training | Tagged , ICT, jotter, Nursery, redlands, school, user

At Webanywhere, one of the most common stories we hear is schools struggling to get to grips with complicated, difficult-to-update websites. By the time they’ve spoken to us the ICT Coordinator has resorted to pulling their hair out; the rest of the school having lost interest months previously.

Redlands Primary and Nursery School were one such school. None of the school website solutions they’d looked at were right for them - they wanted something easy for the school to use on a daily basis. School Jotter, however, was just what they needed.

The school’s Website Administrator, Patricia White, loved the features Read More →

Website Of The Week: Burlington Infants School

Great school websites are the ones that really know what their audience wants. In the case of Burlington Infants School, Bridlington,  there are curriculum details and newsletters for parents, links to fun websites for children, and Burlington Infants’ history for those interested in the school.

What we also like about Burlington Infants School’s website is the thought that’s gone into every section: so you have the ‘Our School’ section, which includes their mission statement, the history and comments from parents - a fantastic way to promote themselves. There’s the gallery, which is broken down into albums, like the Autumn 2012 Read More →

Your school website is the perfect tool for communicating with parents - and a great opportunity for them to engage with your school. It means that, instead of having to pop into the school, or find the phone number, they can discover what their child has been up to, read about forthcoming events and even meet the staff, from the comfort of their armchair.

But what exactly do parents want from a school website? A recent discussion on Mumsnet threw up some interesting comments and suggestions for what would make a good school website for parents - and it also Read More →
