School Website Design and Development:

The website was designed and developed by local Chipping Norton agency MR-Marketing with a focus on clear, organised, and intuitive navigation.

Key sections include:

Home: Featuring the latest news, upcoming events, and quick links to important pages.

About Us: Detailing the school’s history, mission, and values, along with staff profiles.

Curriculum: Outlining the educational programs and subject areas offered.

Parents: Providing resources such as newsletters, term dates, and school policies.

School Life: Including sections for student activities, clubs, and online learning resources.

Contact Us: Offering multiple ways for stakeholders to reach the school, including a contact form, phone number, and address.

Incorporating the School Vision:

The website design intentionally reflects St. Mary’s Primary School’s vision and Christian values, which are central to the school’s identity.

The vision statement, “To provide firm foundations and create opportunities for everyone to be inspired and flourish within a supportive community demonstrating branches of wisdom, integrity, compassion, patience, and joy,” was woven throughout the site’s design and content:

Visual Design: The website uses a warm and inviting school colour, along with images that capture the nurturing and supportive environment of the school, taken by the talented Jeeny Aston of Silver Apples Photography.

Content: Each section of the website highlights the school’s commitment to its values. For instance, the “About Us” and “Curriculum” pages emphasise the importance of wisdom, integrity, compassion, patience, and joy in the educational experience.

Interactive Features: Features like newsletters include stories and examples of how the school community lives out these values daily.

Navigation and Structure: The user-friendly structure ensures that all users can easily access information, reflecting the school’s inclusive and supportive ethos.

Results

Since the launch, the St. Mary’s Primary School website has become a central hub for the school community. 

The website effectively communicates important information, engages users with interactive and regularly updated content, and reflects the school’s commitment to its ethos and values. 

Feedback from parents, staff, and students has been overwhelmingly positive, highlighting the site’s ease of use and the valuable information it provides.
