    Anyone else's embc school website go down?

    One of my schools reported that their website was unavailable this morning (I presume down to parents checking the snow situation). Came back up when school started.
    Anyone else with an embc website have this?

    Yes - Lincolnshires servers were all grinding along rediculously slowly

    Great.
    We tell all parents to check the website rather than ring and its not available so the poor secretaries still have to field all the calls.

    It did get me thinking I should setup a template html file so can rename ad set as main index page to give a single html page with the info on it.

    The most annoying thing is that this is the first time we tried to use the website to inform parents of the snow situation and it failed, now we had calls about the snow and complaints about the website!

    I thought ahead and moved the schools website over to CS New media. Since the change over I've never had a problem

    Already done, waiting for reply.
    More voices would be good though.

    Ours went down as well. Ended up creating a single .html file which displayed the school was closed message. Have asked LEA for reason as the Head wants an explanation.

    Not had any reported issues round here, but most parents / schools use the council pages on the main council site now ...

    Well around here you are advised to check BBC Leicester or Leicester Sound website, but guess what happens to those websites on a snowy day...
