By Egidija Juodseryte in Website of the Week | Tagged primary school, school jotter, school jotter 2, school website, website of the week

We’ve got another great website of the week that has been created by Pinehurst Primary School based in Liverpool, Merseyside. Great design, a lot of good content and relevant information are some of the main features that a good school website needs, and this school did a really good job!

I think this school website has a very unique design. It seems that the homepage includes quite a lot of different features while still looking organised and easy to navigate. You can notice the school values as soon as you open the website. They are followed by the photo gallery

Another great website of the week! This week we are looking at the website created by Brockholes C of E Junior and Infant School based in the village of Brockholes, West Yorkshire. It is a Church School that has been recognised by Ofsted as being an outstanding school in terms of the quality of teaching and the exemplary attitudes that children have towards their learning.

The site is designed with colourful illustrations of trees, play areas and children. A great way to add some colours to the website and to make it appealing to children! The homepage also features some Read More →

Website of the Week – St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

We have another website of the week! This week we’ve chosen a website created by St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

What makes a website stand out, is that images of students dominate on the homepage and there is almost no additional written information regarding school on the homepage. Alongside the school name and a welcoming message on the homepage, you can find the latest school tweets at the bottom of the page and the link to follow the school on Twitter. I believe it’s a great way to engage with students and parents on social media.

Website of the Week – Great Heights Cluster

By Cieran Douglass in Website of the Week | Tagged cluster, school jotter, school website, website of the week
It’s not really fair to call this post a “school website” of the week - instead we’re going to be looking at Great Heights Cluster, a group of eight primaries and one secondary in Bradford, from areas including Queensbury, Great Horton and Clayton Heights - the cluster name comes from the combination of the latter two....

Website of the Week – Brunswick Primary School, Brighton

By Cieran Douglass in Website of the Week | Tagged animate, brighton, primary school, school website, sussex
One of our Primary Website Consultants always talks about the importance of being able to “read” school websites. What can you tell about the school’s location, situation and ethos just from looking at the design and layout of the frontpage of a website. When the notification came through that Brunswick had gone live, I clicked through and instantly I knew this was a school from Brighton - and proud of it. The iconic pebble beach, the sea lapping at the footer of the page, the regency promenade and buildings - it’s Brighton through and through.

This is a great example Read More →

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training, Support | Tagged optimisation, school website, seo, sitemap
A sitemap is a list of all the pages on your website, which is often organised into a structured hierarchy. It’s useful to have, not only for when people want to be able to find all of the pages, but it helps Google, Bing and other search engines index your site so when people search for you they can easily find it....

Making the most of your School Jotter Website

By Cieran Douglass in Customer Training, Support | Tagged good school websites, school website, school website design, tips
By Becky Cunliffe

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. In this blog I'll summarise some of the key things that, in my opinion, should be considered, and what should be forgotten about, when it comes to school websites in particular.

My top tips:
  1. Remember the Purpose - It’s important to remember what the point of the website is. Is it to encourage parents to use your school? Is it a portal for parents? Is it for students to check for events?
    Remember

School Jotter of the Week: Elloughton Primary School

By Webanywhere in Website of the Week | Tagged elloughton, school vision and ethos, school website

Elloughton Primary School near Hull is a place ‘where children are happy and want to be’, according to the introduction on the Homepage of their school website. Everything about the website reflects this statement, both in terms of the design and the content.

Firstly, there’s the beautiful photography that’s been used on the Homepage - shots of schoolchildren enjoying learning or looking studious, and generally lots of smiles.

The website also has an Our Community section. This is a great place for the school to not just shout about how they involve pupils in the community (the School Council, consisting of Read More →

From this homepage there are four areas that you can explore depending on what you’re looking for - School, Thames CC, Nursery and Governors.
