All schools use their websites as a way to market to their chosen student demographic and also as a tool to help support both their students and their parents. There are a number of ways that this is achieved and some of these needs will require the support of dedicated professionals who have experience in designing Websites for schools.
Some of the pages that are important to include on school websites include the following:
Events pages – if you have lots of events going on in your school, it can be a good idea to have a dedicated calendar page where you can share school term dates as well as any trips and other important events such as exams and school photographs. This then makes it easier for parents to keep on top of what is happening at the school.
Curriculum – it is important for parents to be able to keep up to date with what their children are learning. One of the best ways to do this is to have a page dedicated to sharing the curriculum that is covered. This then allows parents to see what their children are up to.
Homework support – this is particularly important for secondary school pupils. These pages can give both students and their parents information that will help them complete their homework tasks. It could be links to online study platforms or a reminder of when their homework is due in.
