Website Helps Primary School Become Ofsted Outstanding

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.

Primary School Website Design For Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi were keen to achieve the best primary school website design possible – a site that would stand out from the rest.

We focused on slick functionality for dynamic news and events feeds, bright, bold and clean design themes and a fully responsive design. Easy to maintain news and events feeds allow the site to be a primary source of information for parents. They also provide a great showcase for the schools activities and ethos, without additional overhead. The site in effect becomes a live and interactive online prospectus.

‘Excellent’ School Website, says Ofsted

Congratulations to all at St. Mary’s, on being ‘Outstanding’!

In a recent Ofsted inspection, St. Mary’s R.C. Primary and Nursery school was awarded ‘Outstanding’, Ofsted’s highest primary school classification. Not only are St. Mary’s now up on the top Ofsted tier, but they impressively leaped straight up two levels to get there.

It was really pleasing that the school’s website received such positive review as part of the inspection, with the Ofsted report describing the website as ‘excellent’ and ‘comprehensive’.

We’re very proud to work with St. Mary’s and it’s great to see how effectively the website is being used and just how quickly it’s become an integral part of the School’s community, as their primary information feed and resource.
