    All my primary schools use Google Sites which is free. Very easy to set-up and add content.

    Both my schools use PrimarySite:
    Home Page :: Upton Junior School, Poole, Dorset
    Home Page :: Lockyer's Middle School, Wimborne, Dorset

    I am quite happy with them - apparently they are easy to update. I don't have to do it any more Yay!

    We recently changed ours and now use School Spider, they basically did everything for us and its easy to use so the teachers can update themselves (fingers crossed!) Woodlands Primary

    I use Primarysite a fair bit as well, they have just swapped onto a new content management ssytem which makes the pages even easier to update. Unfortunately, schools on the old system are not being migrated automatically and would have to pay a charge to move to the new platform.

    As an alternative you might want to consider School Website Design, Primary School Website Design, Secondary School Website Design, Prospectus Design, School Mobile Apps who also offer a add-on app which parents can download. The events and news on the website can also be synced automatically with the app.

    I am tending to find in primary schools that the website needs to be all-singing, all-dancing for Ofsted, visitors and prospective parents but that existing parents seldom look at the website unless they get a text from school telling them to, or it's a snow day. So this is why we are looking at a school app as another tool for effective communication with parents.

    I love our school website. I can 100% recommend the web developers at @VeryPC
    They took the time to listen to our requirements, make suggestions based on what they knew would work (and what wouldn't) and worked tirelessly to get our site design how we wanted it. Believe me, that was no easy task as there are so many interested parties in school who all want to have a say. VeryPC's web developers, Dan and Ben, came to visit our school to talk to SLT and we went through many iterations before settling on the final design.

    The CMS is bespoke, easy to use, and its fast. So much better than what we were using before.

    Since the initial launch we've been through some minor and fairly major updates and BenP has been brilliant. When I look at what we got, and how much we paid, I can't believe how much some of the other companies were quoting for a heavily template based site, with a clunky CMS.
    @Joanne PM me if you want to know more

    Yes, the birthday rabbit. Hopefully you like the site, not just the rabbit!

    I would recommend Weebly. You can pay them $500 to do a custom site design for you.
