School websites now linked to Twitter

Posted by:

SchoolTwitterWe have recently been developing our website template for schools.

It continues to be a popular, cost effective choice for primary schools with over 10% of Oxfordshire Primary Schools now having opted for a 123ICT website. One of the attractions is that we can turnaround a website in less than a week and for schools with a support contract all the website costs are one off payments.

A Google Calendar is now fully integrated into the website and we have recently developed a Twitter option for schools. Twitter is a free and effective way for parents to receive alerts and notification that the school website has been updated. For an additional £100, we can setup a Twitter page for your school, which is automatically updated every time you post articles to your 123ICT website. It proved particularly effective  way of communicating with parents during the recent bad weather.

Our websites are Ofsted and DfE compliant (see statutory link for details) and a useful checklist for evaluating your own school website can be found at:
