Many schools opt for professional photography to enhance their website, and Woodham Ley Primary School have used some great images to really bring their School Jotter website to life.
Captivating photographs of children playing, learning and general shots of the school itself also decorate the Essex school’s website elsewhere, from the Class Pages sections to the Learning Zone, which is a useful part of the website for pupils. It all gives the impression that this school is really all about the children – and this is backed up by the welcome message that also appears on the homepage.
Another feature that’s popular with many schools is the direct link to the school’s Learnanywhere VLE on the homepage. This encourages children and parents to use Learnanywhere more, and also informs new visitors to the site that this is a school completely in tune with new technologies for schools!
You can take a look at Woodham Ley Primary School’s website here.
The Westborough School’s website represents their location perfectly: with a beautiful design showing a beach and gentle waves, backed by blue skies.
Having a bespoke design for your School Jotter website allows you to be a little more creative with how the website looks – but of course the content is just as important. The Essex school have plenty of content uploaded for children and parents – here are our favourite bits.
The Our Classes section breaks down what’s being studied, accompanied by photographs and, for some classes, information regarding the teacher and teaching assistants. This is a great area for parents to go to find out what their child will be doing – and catch up on recent activities via photographs.
The best feature is Virtual Office: here, parents can find out everything they need to know, without having to ask the school or their child’s teacher. From school uniform details and reporting absences, to newsletters and school meal information, it’s all here. There’s even a question and answer section, in case a parent’s query isn’t answered in the other areas of this section.
