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.
If you are interested in a new website for your school and think we can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
