Website of the Week – Rogiet Primary School

Published: May 9, 2016

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. One of the features I particularly like are the buttons for each individual class. They’re clear, easy to read and click on, and make great use of iconography.

We can also see some great usage of built-in School Jotter features here. The use of a calendar feed on the main page (showing latest events) with a dedicated page for the full, detailed calendar is a nice touch, as is the dedicated strip on the website for their twitter feed.
I’ve not even mentioned yet how the entire site manages to be bilingual in English and Welsh without becoming overly encumbered with text, which speaks volumes about the school’s commitment to its community.
Overall, one of the best websites I’ve seen so far this year, congratulations to Rogiet Primary!
