Monksmead Primary School wanted a website that promoted the school’s values, aims and ethos – through School Jotter 2, they were able to do this.
When newly appointed Head Teacher, Cathy Elsley, moved to Monksmead School one of the first things that she wanted to change was the school’s website. When she arrived the existing site looked dated, it did not represent the school as she wanted and it was not a useful communication tool for parents. As Cathy had worked with Webanywhere at her previous school, she knew who to turn to, to get the job done. She knew she wanted a website that spoke for itself and that would be a useful tool for parents.
Monksmead specifically wanted a website that showcased the school, and how dedicated they are to education. School Jotter 2 was the perfect option for this, with its easy to edit features and versatile appeal. The delivery technician made sure that Cathy was kept up to date on the progress of the site and that the job stayed on track. They also paid attention to detail to make sure the website was exactly what the school wanted, changing anything that Cathy required.
After the set-up process, which included training, Monksmead had a bright, colourful and informative website. The new website has gone down a treat in school, with positive reactions from both staff and children. It has provided the school community with up to date news and important dates, all at the click of a button. At a recent parents meeting for new starters, parents commented on how useful the website was for finding out information regarding the school, uniforms and lunch menus. The school even asked the parents of their pupils what content they would like to see on the website, which would then be added if appropriate.
