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.
The school website requirement for performance tables is that "you must include a link to the school and college performance tables and your school’s performance tables page."
This means, that you need to choose an appropriate place to add a link to your specific school's performance tables on the relevant government website.
This is such a simple requirement to meet. It's also very simple and there's very little to do beyond the requirement. But, you do need to link to the correct information.
So, follow these steps ...
Our advice is to choose from one of two options.
Option 1 - Add to a page in your website
You could choose to create a page which has your Ofsted report, exam results and performance tables. That is an option that some schools choose and it does work.
That's because it's great to see the information that is relevantly tied together displayed on a single page so it's easier to find and you're not adding another menu link.
An example, see here: https://st-annesrc.lancs.sch.uk/about-us/exam-and-performance-tables
Option 2 - Link Direct from your menu
This is a more popular option because this is a straight link through to your performance results page on your website with no need for visitors to go to a page first, before reaching your results.
One important note, make sure that you make your link open in a new window because you're linking to an external website. That is always best practice.
And that's it! A really straightforward requirement to meet in full, very quickly.
