  1. Hi all, I'm new here and pleased to find a supportive community. I have just been tasked with the responsibility of ensuring our school's website meets statutory requirements. Before I embark on this task, I'd been to keen to hear and learn about how others have approached this. In particular, at your school:

    Who is responsible for the website and ensuring it continues to meet the statutory requirements?

    How much time/effort is expended on making sure the website meets requirements?

    We're also thinking about working with a third party to manage the site for us, is there anyone out there who has had a positive or negative experience in doing this?

    Cheers.

    Loads of advice available on Edugeek - worth having a trawl through that site and posting there yourself.
     
  3. Thanks for the pointer Skeoch, that seems like the sort of forum I am looking for :)

    1) Decide what you want the web site to do - a static "billboard"; a dynamic daily update information point; does it carry all homework; lesson content etc etc.l (see also point 4)

    2) If you have n't done so already , read this guidelines document (and make sure your governing body have read this as well)

    3) Get a 3rd party to set up the site and do the design, back-up, general layout/maintenance etc..

    4) Make sure that your SMT and governors know that j keeping the site up to date and adding content is a purely clerical task and should be carried out by the appropriate staff member (s)

    5) as above use Edugeek for technical advice etc.
