I noticed when working on the site there is a big overlap with my display work - this 're-purposing' of content has led to increased efficiency for me as a designer. For example, the content on our Sports Day display board was able to be turned into a web page quickly.
The new site is a success and has been praised by the Senior leaders, governors, staff, pupils at our school as well as our suppliers.
The aims of the website have all been achieved:
⁕ Promote our Catholic values
⁕ Further teaching and learning
⁕ Celebrate pupil achievement
⁕ Serve our school community
⁕ Be an impressive information resource
⁕ Link to our Twitter and YouTube social media channels
⁕ Offer communication links with the wider community (our website links to over 200 organisations St.
Mary's work with)
There are still many sections, features and refinements planned to be added as the website is further developed in the future.
