Both of my sons attended Burlescombe Primary School and whilst my wife was a Governor, she was asked if I could help with the websites for both Burlescombe and it’s sister school, Webbers. The Valley Partnership.
Imagery is often a problem with schools, but I managed to not only secure access for a photoshoot – but the services of another parent who just happened to be a top notch, award winning photographer – Abbie Trayler-Smith!
Both school logos were very badly drawn GIF images around 200 pixels square, so I took them and re-drew them into Vector format. The schools and logos already had their own livery, so this was tweaked to a digital hue and the rest was easy. The design was to be clean and above all – easy to navigate. There is a LOT of information that has to go on to a school website, just to satisfy OFSTED and then you have all the useful stuff too. I gave the school some 1 to 1 training on uploading BLOG posts and Newsletters and everything seems to be ticking a long nicely.
