Blogs can be much more than a series of posts, WordPress has great navigation features that allows you to provide a structured website for your school (or anything else).

  • Build a website with out needing to know how to code.
  • Easily organise and structure the site.
  • Share the load of updating across the school.
  • Keep parents and others up to date
  • Raise the profile of your school.
  • Celebrate achievements of pupils and school.
  • Advertise and document events and activities.
  • Get feedback/communication from children and parents.
  • Distribute newsletters and other documents.

Tips: Show the latest letter home in the sidebar. Use dlvr.it to tweet your news.

  1. Hi John
    doing bootcamp #2. Have also created 2 blogs for p7 classes who have gone away this week on their week away to Kindrogan. They are now able to make posts while they are there and I was wondering if it is possible to link the blogs to our school website so parents could check it out.
    Q. Is it possible to set it up so that parents can view and comment and still allow the children to make posts ie different categories of user? Access rights etc?

    Cheers

    1. Hi Philip,
      You would need to make a link from your school website to the blog. I don’t know how your school website is set up but most I’ve seen allow you to create links.
      If the blogs are public parents will be able to view. They should be able to ad comments if commets are turned on (as they are by default). You will have to moderate the first comment from each commeter. I’d recommend turning on moderation of all comments.
