The Benefits of a Great School Website

At Parent Apps, we’re always looking at new ways to improve the service we offer to schools. Most head teachers want to create an eye-catching website that really gives their staff, pupils and parents everything they need. The trouble is finding the people who can put some time into its design and maintenance.

Parent Apps can now deliver top quality websites that really hit the mark and are tailored exactly to your needs. Just like our apps, we’ll be able to produce a bespoke solution that allows you to keep everyone up to date and fits your school brand like a glove.

If you want your school to stand out from the rest, getting your website right is one of the first places you should consider changing. School sites can often stagnate and many haven’t been updated in line with the latest technology.

A new website can:

  • Be easier to navigate and have value added extras that not only promote your school but gives everyone better accessibility.
  • Be used to deliver important information and guidance for staff, pupils and parents alike.
  • Have dedicated areas that can be accessed by certain individuals with the right log in facilities.
  • Create more engagement with parents and can also be linked into your school app.
  • Promote you school and help it stand out from the crowd.

Better communication is high up the agenda for education nowadays and any way that you can improve on how you stay in contact with parents is an advantage. There have been a lot of changes in web design over the last few years.

For instance, can your site be viewed and used just as well on a mobile device such as a smart phone as it can on a traditional PC? More and more of us nowadays access the web on our phones or tablets and web design needs to be responsive to this.

A dynamic website has also become part of building credibility for many organisations such as schools. You can include all the information that parents need but you can also have great added extras such as a regularly updated blog, interactive services and video and images that promote you school to a wider audience.

The good news is that web design is now highly affordable. Web design is not just about an attractive appearance. It’s about good usability and having all the right components in the right place so that your viewers can easily access what they need. At Parent Apps we are able to provide the right service at the right cost.

If it’s been a while since your existing website has had an update, perhaps now is the time to see what the team at Parent Apps can do to deliver a modern and attractive new site that works on all devices and delivers better engagement with parents, staff and pupils alike.
