Website Of The Week: Welburn Hall School

Published: November 23, 2012

Finding the time to keep your school website up to date is an issue that frustrates many a head teacher. It’s the reason why School Jotter was created – to allow content to be uploaded quickly and easily, without the need for advanced technical expertise.
Subsequently, it means schools like Welburn Hall School, in North Yorkshire, can populate their school website to the point where it becomes a veritable treasure trove of information for parents, pupils and passive web users alike.

Welburn Hall have used their School Jotter-based website to provide children with useful links (via the ‘Kids Zone’), governors with their own archive of meeting minutes and schedule of forthcoming meetings, and parents with everything they need to know, from an introduction to the staff to information on events and trips.
We particularly like the information they’ve given on the curriculum – complete with photos, and the ‘Our Pupils’ section, which each term features a write-up about a different pupil. It documents what the child likes about the school, what they’ve been doing – even what the pupil’s parents think. It’s a useful element for parents who may be considering sending their child to Welburn. We hope that this, along with the details of the school’s post-16 offerings, and the interesting virtual tour feature, means Welburn Hall School will have plenty of new pupils for a long time to come!
