- Project URL: Wednesfield High Academy Website
The aim of the website was to display all the legal requirements presented to them by Ofsted as a new Academy. Along with giving students, parents and staff a central hub to get information about the school and updates on events, term times and good news stories. All the information relating to Wednesfield high was displayed in an easy to read format, clearly displaying all the school’s policies, events and news in easy to navigate sections.
A simple design was chosen to emphasise the need for users to access information fast. A clean layout enabled ease of use, displaying lots of text without overwhelming, or confusing the user.
By using a CMS (Content Management System) we were able to ensure the site was easy to maintain. With these easy to use tools, we ensure that the information on the website stays up to date and relevant. The site is maintained by us and we work closely with Wednesfield High to ensure the content is up to date and relevant. The events and news section enabled us to create a home for the dynamic content on the website, this system allowed for us to quickly upload and refresh the content without falling into the trap that so many older website suffer from where by every piece of information has its own page.
The Overall target of this project was simple, visitors had to be able to find the information they required quickly. Policy documents need to be updatable fast and found faster. We created a clean, mobile-friendly website to cater to as many people as possible, without limiting use to a single device or screen size. The design and content were chosen to be focused on being Ofsted compliant and now gives the Academy a fresh modern look to anyone who visits.
Since handover Wednesfield High have taken advantage of one of our maintenance packages we offer. This gives them piece of mind, and allows us to constantly update the site to be compliant with any new updates reducing the risk of any security holes appearing. Our maintenance packages allow clients to get their websites updated without training and without distraction, this leads to the website working better for them and protecting their investment.
If you think your business could benefit from a web presence, an update to an existing website or just want to have a chat about the wealth of possibilities for your website, please get in touch we’re happy to help.
We really didn’t want to fall into the trap of allowing our new website to become quickly outdated so the service that VOiD Applications provide us with is excellent. We don’t have the skills in-house (or the time!) to maintain the website to the high professional standard that VOiD Apps can. Chris and Neil do a fantastic job of keeping it updated for us; Any amendments that we request are actioned within a couple of hours. I would recommend this service without hesitation. - Kirsty Jones, School Business Manager of Wednesfield High Academy
