    Through the CMS user manager, you can delegate and share the content editing with other staff, governors or even parents and pupils - you can choose which pages other editors can see and edit. The CMS gives you full control to create new users and manage existing users, and choose whether content editors can publish directly to the internet or to a 'pending approval' area.

    Perfect for emergencies or school closures, our Home Alert feature allows you to publish a key message that will appear before the main website home page.

The CMS also has a pop-up window feature for less urgent notices.

  • Photo icon

    9. Photo

    Parents love to watch photo galleries! And other visitors will be drawn to photos which can say much more than words. Batch upload photos in one go and sit back and watch the sideshow or view thumbnails and jump around. Create as many galleries as you wish and organise them with our clever gallery groups feature which allows you to tag a gallery so it automatically appears on the right page. You can also showcase photos with our built in instagram style Photo Grids feature.

    Having a staff photo gallery is often helpful for parental engagement.

Create multiple galleries for different year groups, to reflect your organisational structure or however you wish.
