    Really does make it feel much better, very good simple idea (meant as a big compliment), hard work, some time = great result

    Some people would resulted in being over the top but what you done there does make a difference.

    Looks very nice!!!! Congrats mate!!!

    If you fancy a tiny bit of constructive criticism - make the animated banner much much smaller. The header plus main menu plus amimated banner takes up almost 75% of my screen and thats at 1280x1024. I almost have to scroll before I can see anything at all!

    If you don't fancy a bit of constructive crisicism - IGNORE ME!

    It does look well. All the logos at the bottom. I would try to arrange them so they dont take up as much space.

    Also there seems to be a few different fonts used. Myself, i would have it so you only use one.

    on the "Prospective Parent?" i would put the PDF logo on the left hand side so they all line up. - like it is on the PTA page.

    On the community page there seems to be a few empty bullet points and items such as "ROCK Scheme" & "Local community use of school premises" look a little out of place.

    on the Curriculum page, i would change the maths logo to something more maths related. Such as numbers, calculators etc

    I would also remove all the e-mail links and put images of the e-mail address instead. This will prevent spam.

    when the site was orignally created in 2007 the code was valid, but as it has bloated it is not valid any more.

    moving to joomla so that will fix that

    i am going to tidy the logos later today.

    i have tried to stick to two fonts, a serif font and a sans serif font

    the email pages dont show the addresses instead take you to a email form page, no captcha tho. supprisingly very little spam.

    it was just the fact it was crossed through - i'm guessing they are not major flaws as its all displayed correctly just you might want to remove the validator part!
