Recently, we featured a School Jotter website that acted as a website for two schools (Mary Howard and St Andrew’s Primary Schools) and talked about how this can be a useful solution for smaller schools that want a fantastic website without the price tag.
Bishopstone CoE Primary School’s website has one of the most interesting designs we’ve ever had the pleasure of working on. The Wiltshire school has gone for a splash page to entice visitors into their website – and you can see this above.
Webanywhere work with a number of Federations, and one recent School Jotter 2 website created was for the Debdale Federation. Consisting of two schools, Yeoman Park School and Redgate School, the Debdale Federation went for an exciting splash page featuring a colourful image of the two schools, as you can see above.
Clicking on the relevant school on the splash page takes you through to the area of the website dedicated to that school. Once past the splash page, the design is simple and straightforward; however, the content that has been uploaded is succinct and fits the school website theme and design perfectly.
There is a real ‘community’ feel to this website, and the two Nottinghamshire schools have kept this theme throughout – particularly with the School Community section. Here you’ll find full details of everything from staff structure to a list of Friends of Debdale Federation. The Extended Services section is also interesting, giving details of other activities the school provides outside of the normal 9-3.30 – like their Summer Play Scheme, for example.
Splash pages are a great way to introduce your website to visitors and allow you to be really creative with images and design. To find out more about School Jotter 2, and bespoke splash pages, click here. To view the Debdale Federation website click here.
