School website advice

Oakfield Primary School's new website has become a reliable and trusted information hub for the
local community. ICT technician Nicole Nazareth shares her top tips for any schools looking to develop a new website

Last year, Oakfield Primary School in Wickford, Essex, found it needed to improve communication and engagement with its staff, pupils, parents and the local community.

More often than not, the first thing parents come across when researching potential schools for their child is a school's website.

It is important for a website to make a good first impression that lasts, as those first few clicks of a mouse will have a huge impact on a parent's perception of a school and their decision as to whether to send their child there.

While making a great first impression on parents was a key objective for us, we also wanted to ensure we were using our website to its full potential.
