Keeping an Ofsted ready website can be hard work and a pressure you don't need.
All year round our experts monitor DfE requirements to ensure that the information we provide is right up to date and as accurate as possible. The aim of everything we do is to make your job just that little bit easier. That's why we built The Ofsted Ready School Website Tool.
The Ofsted Ready School Website Tool has been created, from the ground up by our own developers to provide you with a step by step online guide to full compliance.
There's two critical problems when it comes to ensuring your website is always compliant.
Firstly, the requirements change on average 2-4 times a year. You have enough to do without worrying about monitoring those changes. You certainly have enough to do to worry about implementing them.
Secondly, Headteacher's inboxes are overloaded with offers of checklists for all sorts of compliance. How do you know which resources you can trust? And isn't there a better way than printing off reams of paper to run a checklist?
The solution is in our unique and complete free website checker. The Ofsted Ready School Website Tool has been built to make this job quicker and easier.
Here's the process:
We keep up to date with the requirements. We monitor numerous sources and act quickly to update our information as soon as the changes occur. We check our work with industry insiders and confirm any queries directly with DfE.
We then update our software with those requirements. All users of The Ofsted Ready School Website Tool are then notified of any changes. Logging back in to your account will highlight which requirements have changed so you can check them easily.
Using The Ofsted Ready Website Tool is incredibly easy and hugely powerful.
A view of your website sits side-by-side with the very latest list of requirements. You simply work your way through the list. You can make notes as you can then save and come back later.
Every time you log in you'll see whether your review is completed and also whether or not your website is compliant. Then, if you'd like to, print off your completed review to action any changes.
Why is it free? (is there a catch?)
There simply is no catch. We hope you love using this tool and find it really useful. We also hope that means that when you come to renew your school website package, you'll think of us. But, there's certainly no pressure or obligation to do so.
We simply think this is important enough to offer to schools for free.

For some schools, the time just to look through your website might be a time-consumer too far. It might also be that it's too overwhelming knowing where to start.
If that's you, drop us a line. We have a range of affordable packages to support you. From a single one-off audit of your website to year round support. If we can help we'd love to.
