Don’t get marked down on your school website, let’s get updated now. 

Well a big welcome back to school comes along with a whole load of new Ofsted website requirements updates and this is a big one, so don’t ignore it! Remember, Ofsted inspections can happen at any time so ensure you’re not making simple mistakes that could prevent the ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ that your school is aiming for.

Using an Ofsted website requirements checklist is great place to find out what is required of your school and ensure you’re not missing anything.

Your school website is one of, if not the first place Ofsted will look. In fact they will often look at your website before you even know you’re having an inspection.

Prepare your website for inspection – Top Tips 
  • Organise your website – create the best impression by ensuring that your information is clear and easy to find. This will give you the best chance to impress at first glance.
  • Make sure statutory information is clearly labelled and easy to locate. Having a simple page structure with sub folders is a great way to start.
  • Is your website portraying your school in the right light? Make sure you have a consistent approach to your website and that it is showing the correct message about your school. Have a look at some of our examples if you would like to compare.
