Maggie has been supporting our school developing our website for many years. Maggie is very knowledgeable and very quick and efficient at developing sections of our site as and when needed. She was the driving force behind the complete redesign of our website. I would absolutely recommend her services.
Head Teacher, Orleans Primary School
Having developed and maintained the website for several years I knew what the school needed from their site and what the CMS and design had to achieve – it needed be flexible to enable future development, easy to update for school staff, allow alerts for parents, and be able to showcase school achievements.
During development I worked closely with the school to help specify their requirements and advised on usability and an accessible navigation system. I collaborated with school staff to build the site to their specifications, bringing the project in on time for the new school year.
My on-going maintenance work has involved; updating key areas of the site including the photo gallery, video uploads, managing permissions and users in secure areas, and providing technical support. I train the school administrators in using the CMS to update specific areas.
In 2013 I worked with two classes of Year 3 children as part of ICT Week to develop their own webpages. Working in the classroom with the whole class, and small groups of children I coached them in web development, using the CMS, uploading photos and editing text. The pages they built were made live on the school website.
In 2014 I developed a ‘Web Design’ 6 week course for Year 5. I worked with the class teachers so they could deliver the course, and came into the class several times throughout the 6 weeks to help deliver the lessons and add my professional experience.
