One of our primary schools recently jumped up to Ofsted Outstanding for the first time and we’re proud our website design played it’s part.
Corpus Christi RC Primary School, in Oldham, has just jumped up to Ofsted Outstanding, after a recent inspection in December.
As reported in the Oldham Chronicle, it is not only the first time the school has achieved the top Ofsted level, but they are also the first school in the borough to be awarded ‘Outstanding’, following changes to the inspection process introduced in September 2015. You can find out more about the result and what it means to the school, in the headteacher’s post inspection narrative, on the school’s website.
We’ve worked with Corpus for several years, having designed and maintained the school’s website, along with several other projects including logo design, prospectus and class badges, so we’re very proud to have played our part in the result.
The importance of a primary school website
A primary school website plays an ever increasing role and is now frequently the first port of call for Ofsted, at the start of the inspection process.
A lot of effort goes into ensuring that our school websites meet and maintain the latest Ofsted and DfE statutory requirements and guidelines and hence, were pleased to hear the website was regarded very highly by the inspection team. Chris Hanson, the school’s headteacher offered the following:
“The inspection team were really impressed with the website and said it proved how broad and balanced our curriculum is.”
Development of our primary school website platform is ongoing, to ensure we maintain these highest levels and provide a product and service that can really make a difference to daily school life and the school community.

rainbowworks’ latest primary school website launches today at Corpus Christi in Oldham.
We’re excited to be launching our latest primary school website project today, over at Corpus Christi Primary School in Oldham. We set out to produce an excellent primary school website and we’re proud of the results. Feedback from senior staff and governors has been very positive and we now hope the whole school community will benefit as a result. Corpus have been great to work with and we’re looking forward to working with them on other exciting projects in the near future.
Things have been crazy busy of late and despite best intentions the blog has unfortunately taken one for the team.
However, a sneaky Saturday afternoon start at making amends with a quick look at one of the latest website projects. The site was created for StormPM, a small project management consultancy start up with a whole lot of experience.
With a wealth of recent experience in the middle east, Simon of Storm, has a worked on a heavyweight portfolio of construction projects and recently decided to launch his own consultancy, from the serenity of West Sussex.
The website was one part of the full brand identity design package we created, such that Storm was set with everything it needed to hit the ground running. The package also included logo design, full stationery (letter, invoice, business cards etc.) and some showcase imagery. It’s so nice to build an identity from scratch, as it allows real consistency to run through all elements, leaving a nice strong image.
Starting from Simon’s orange, and with project management skills in full effect, the process had real rhythm and was a pleasure to work on. The image doesn’t really do the site justice, with it’s parallax images and other effects, but it’s linked, so go and have a look and I’ll endeavour to share more of the project in the not too distant future.

Very excited to have just launched the latest web design project!
A brand new primary school website design for St John Fisher RC Primary School in Tameside.
I really enjoy working on a primary school website design – content and themes are bright and fun and this is usually matched by the enthusiasm of the primary school design team. A well designed website can really have on a positive impact on the school community’s daily life, and it’s nice to play a part in that change.
This website design focuses on live news and events content, such that the school can keep parents and pupils fully informed of everything that’s going on, whilst also painting a true and vibrant picture of daily school life to prospective parents and the community.
The website is designed to be fully responsive, with layouts adapting for tablet and mobile devices, so that parents and pupils can stay up to date wherever they are.
More details of the project can be found here.
