Considered responsive primary school websites
We design and develop fully responsive bespoke websites for primary schools – meaning your website will be viewed perfectly on any device that accesses it! Accept any less from a school marketing agency and you'll be compromising on quality, which could affect your search engine rankings.
You've probably heard the term `user experience` - it's a big deal in the world of web! But what does it mean to your primary school? It's all about considering how parents and other stakeholders would make their journey through your website to find the information they are looking for. Whether that is homework resources, parents looking for holiday dates or governor's searching for compliance information, it's our job to make sure they can find the information they want, fast.
