The aim for the website was to display all the legal requirements presented to them by Ofsted as a new Academy company. The site needed to have easy to find information about the MAC, the Academies under the MAC and as well as the public facing polices.
We chose a simple design that showed different individual sections of information as its own divided section on a page. This helped create a clean layout that encompasses a lot of text information without confusing or overwhelming the user.
The client wanted a website that was easy to maintain for the staff at the Academy. We used a CMS (Content Management System) and comprehensive written instructions along with a training session on how to change pretty much every aspect of the website so even the most inexperienced user could help to achieve this goal.
By making sure the site was easy to maintain the life of the website is extended. With easy to use tools the information on the website stays up to date and fresh. A news and events section creates the ideal home for dynamic content and reduces the risk, a risk many older websites have fallen foul to, of new page creation for new content when its not needed.
The targets for this project were simple, users needed to be able to find the information they were looking for quickly and without confusion. Policy documents needed to be updatable by staff and downloadable for users. We created a clean mobile friendly design to target the website to as many different people as possible, not limiting use to a certain device or screen size. All the design and content choices for the project focused around the need to be Ofsted compliant.
When creating websites for education we know how important Ofsted compliance is, especially for newly formed Academies and their parent companies. We know exactly what Ofsted expect so we tailor design and structural decisions around these targets.
