Built hundreds of website and helped countless schools realise their potential online. Ian should be called upon for straight-talking advice and to make a difference to the way you present your school through every outlet.
Let's get straight into it. Here's a few options to consider on your path to Ofsted school website requirements.
We see our job as making your job just a little bit easier. That's why we built the School Website Requirements Checker and ensure our Ofsted Ready Website Guide is always right up to date.
Firstly, signup for The Ofsted Ready Website Guide. That's all you need to do to get access to 2 critical resources that are used by well over 1000 schools all over the UK.
The Ofsted Ready Website Guide is a powerful document that provides an unrivalled level of detail and insight. Our in-house experts keep this up to date all year round. They monitor DfE requirements and act quickly to ensure the latest information is available. It includes a checklist (like any other Ofsted school website document), but so much more. That's the first resource you'll get instant access to.
The second part of this is access to a completely unique product. The School Website Requirements Checker was built to make it as simple as possible for you to check your website. When you sign up, we'll carry out a few verification steps to ensure we're providing this to genuine schools. Then send you details and instructions on how to check your website.
Want to know if the Tool genuinely does make it easier to achieve Ofsted school website compliance? How's this for feedback?
"To be honest, it’s been a real help as it came around just at the right time. I had an email from our Business Manager saying that the governors had picked up on Ofsted changes. He asked me to see how compliant we were. I’ve done it using your guide in the past but this checker tool just makes it that bit easier. In a matter of minutes, I was able to check each section and write notes about what was needed, print off the report and hand it straight back to the Business Manager."

The Guide and the Tool are both incredibly useful - the feedback we regularly receive bear testimony to that. But are you sometimes just too busy? Or does the sheer size of the list make it difficult to know where to start?
