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 →

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.

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 →

This week we’ve chosen the Aston All Saints Church of England Primary School website which has been as our Website of the Week.

There are many posts online about how to make a great website, and many similar posts on what to avoid; these tend to be fairly generic.
