Unfortunately, far too few headteachers and governing bodies fully appreciate their legal obligations when it comes to the school website. There is a vast amount of mandatory information and data that must be published and the list is changing so frequently that even the most diligent of schools can struggle to maintain the standard required.
Not only can an inadequate site attract the wrong kind of attention from Ofsted, it will also have an impact on the recruitment of high quality staff. Furthermore, it can have a negative impact when it's time for new parents to select schools for their children which could affect funding for your school. Remember, your website is the your shop window to the world and should show your school off in a truly positive way by embodying the fun, culture, values and ethos of your school.
