Carleton Green Primary School in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire have entirely overhauled their website with the collaboration of Blackpool-based company Schudio. This major redesign saw the addition of a modern logo, professional photos and well-presented content that is clear and accessible, both on computers and mobile devices.

The website also includes modules that allow staff to keep their section of the site up-to-date, from admissions, to recruitment, to HR. The school blog keeps visitors updated on exciting developments such as a visit from a police sergeant, or sharing the resources that pupils have been using to learn.

“The layout of our new website is easily accessible and grabs the attention of the website visitor with the banner photographs,” said school leader Stephen Boyd. “The colours we chose reflect the corporate colours of our school uniform, logo etc. The website works well as it has a crisp, clear appearance.

“We especially love using the photo galleries and embedding these into class blogs. It is great to be able to have the photo gallery in the blog as this means parents don't need to navigate to another area of the website. We have recently added the absence reporting module, which is proving popular with parents and is great as it is a written record of children's absences compared to a voicemail message.”


Each class features a bespoke page under their avian name (Ducklings, Parrots, Herons, Kestrels etc), featuring blogs, updates, photos and more.

“Staff look after their own class pages and blogs,” added Stephen. “They are confident in using the CMS to achieve this. It’s easy to use as the content box is very similar to the look of MSWord or Pages which most are familiar with. Year 5 & 6 children, who have been trained in blogging, find it a walk in the park!”


Schudio director Ian Richardson said: “Your school website can truly start to come to life and keep users coming back time and time again if you engage the audience effectively. A great way to achieve this is by getting teachers and students involved. Just a few small jobs, completed regularly, will keep your website current, up to date, relevant and interesting. This is one of the very best ways to show Ofsted what you’re all about too - bonus!”
