A Case Study in School Website Design
The Flitch Green Academy in Essex, formerly Flitch Green Primary School, has only recently been granted Academy status. The school is internationally known for their innovative approach to learning using ICT and are also featured in Apple’s examples of innovative schools.
They wanted an a new school website design for an engaging online presence that was vibrant, professional and totally functional for both the parents and pupils. The new school website does just that using a clean and contemporary design complemented by a banner slide show on the front page to welcome visitors. There is a scrolling announcement bar running along the top of the menu bar which is easily configurable and displays important messages to the user whichever page they happen to be on at the time.
The parents can subscribe to the school’s latest news via RSS, perfect for announcements such as school closures. There are also a number of other features in this school website design including links to each individual class blog, the children’s secure learning platforms, class newsletters, letters to parents and much more. Parents and students can keep up to date on forthcoming events, receive live updates on residential trips via Twitter feeds and even check the online menu for their school dinners. Even though the design is clean and simple, the site contains a wealth of information including an engaging flash book where prospective parents can flick through and also download the school prospectus.
It’s easy to add, remove and edit content with our Content Management Module
The site is very simple to navigate and find exactly what you need quickly and easily, in fact, everything is a maximum of two clicks away. The site framework has been constructed to incorporate our content management module that can be updated by non-technical users with ease and therefore a minimum of administration is required to keep it fresh and relevant, whilst safeguarding the consistent look and feel of pages.
Another part of the brief for this school website design was to give several layers of access to the staff to enable them to easily add, edit or remove pages within their own areas giving them full control over content. With our content management module in place, it ensures consistency by allowing each user to copy and paste straight from PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and YouTube without making any changes to the page layout and they can also place download links for these files when required.
School Website Design – User Manual
We even provided a comprehensive user manual that includes step by step, easy to follow instructions on how to add, edit and tweak all of the features and functionality on the website by the staff without any further involvement by us, ensuring the website not only looks professional but is easy and enjoyable to maintain.
