websites for schools
OFTSED compliant school website design
At Heppiness Web Design, we create OFSTED compliant websites for nurseries, primary and high schools.
It has been said that, the fickle beast known as the OFSTED Inspector will visit your school web site before they visit your school. It therefore stands to reason that he/she will have formed an opinion of your school, your staff and your systems before they cross your threshold.
Whilst we cannot make an OFSTED inspection any more pleasant, we can ensure that an inspectors first impressions of your school is a good one.
We have a working understanding of The School Information Regulations and it’s subsequent amendments; we have documented every piece of feedback and advice that we have received from previous OFSTED inspections; plus we search the internet for comments and advice from schools and LAs around the country.
As a result, our school web sites fulfil your statutory obligations, provide the information both OFSTED and parents expect to find and if you want to excel, we can help you do that too.
what schools say about heppiness web design
The relationships we’ve built with schools are some of the most rewarding in our business.
Once we build your website, you become a part of a network of schools benefiting from a collective knowledge of successful school websites. We keep you informed of changes to regulations and best practice, we help keep your website secure and we’re always available to update your site or to take your calls.
Here’s what a couple of our schools say about us.

school website audit
We have compiled a simple 1 hour audit that compares your school website to the statutory requirements, the desirable features that have been appreciated or suggested, plus some ideas to consider that have been applauded by inspectors.
The audit can also be used as a wish list for schools who want a new website built.
