    Ofsted don't get out much!

    Ofsted have finished at our school and made the following comment...

    • the website is ‘one of the best ever seen’.

    They were referring to our website here Prenton High School for Girls

    Not sure what to think now?

    I think it delivers relevant information in an easily accessible format. The design/look may not be bang up to date, but it probably fulfills the criteria OFSTED are looking for in a school website, which is to inform.

    It's a module called scroller renat.
    The site uses joomla.

    I am guessing you decided to go cheap and not let frog do it? We have just gone frog and compared the sites of those who didnt pay for Frog to design it and at those where Frog did.... big difference. Having our 1st design meeting come tomorrow.

    @reg Not a bad site but I do see your point

    We've got Poople too, but it was my understanding that we needed a VLE too? Is this not the case anymore?!

    @reggiep: The site has a few niggles with the design (stray lines and bullet points?) but it's fast, clean, simple and shows all of the information that OFSTED were looking for. They've probably seen some very fancy, expensive, all singing and all dancing websites but deemed them as poor for being useless.

    Not sure what to think now?
    My main issue with the site is the fact that it's had a huge BASE64 injection attack at somepoint that's dropped a huge pile of spam in the page headers... just hit view source on it.

    Code:
     <!-- Begin News --><u style='display:none'><a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=8149">without atacand buy prescription</a> and example, medical illegal are <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=11999">discount hoodia without prescription</a> average <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=19855">mg detrol x pills 60 2</a> for FDA, for <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=5919">nexium buy</a> are <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=12669">cheap lamictal without prescription</a> drugs, orlistat. of <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=11690">no cheap herbolax rx</a> some For For in numerous <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=21363">seroquel 60 pills x 300 mg</a> a where and commitment receive <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=5550">discount hydrocodone cod</a> phone pharmacies. drugstores, <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=6543">zyrtec online cheap</a> address did but private that <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=15841">buy prinivil online</a> <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=20779">neurontin</a> know researchers provide sidestep <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=1558">description ionamin</a> greater <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=8527">avodart cod</a> <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=8021">arimidex prescription no</a> a online phone within <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=13898">mentat c.o.d cheap</a> physician drug pressure <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=16574">requip buy cod</a> Association a the <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=17230">seroquel c.o.d cheap</a> from and <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=13303">order liv.52 c.o.d</a> with the <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=10564">overnight cheap delivery differin</a> that <a href="http://www.drskyeweintraub.com/cms/d2.php?p=9403">discount clarinex  no rx</a> illegal illegal between without *snip*
    ...and there's a lot more of it than I've quoted... EduGeek restricts post lengths...

    So, the site has been exploited via an open form input box... insufficent sanetizing going on somewhere... you need to tear thru the entire server... preferably, flatten and install from known clean backups, as you don't know what else has been injected and where (eg: IRC Daemon running from tmp etc etc). It's showing up on every page in the source... am guessing it's either your "Contact Us" page or your login page that needs it's code reinspecting. It's definitely going to be a publically accessible form input somewhere on the site.

    Fortunately your CSS prevents the above dross from displaying when the page is rendered in the browser, otherwise I think OFSTED may have had a VERY different reaction to it's content.
