New Website for Withinfields

Woodhouse Primary School has signed up to use Athena.

The new Woodhouse Primary School web site was completed over the holiday period and officially went live on the 4th January 2009.

The design template uses the school colours and crest.

The new site, powered by Athena, allows staff at the schools to easily upload newsletters, images, Woodhouse FM podcasts, with embedded player, and policy documents. In addition staff can very simply add and edit pages, in what resembles a standard word processing screen, to keep the site both up to date and interesting alongside a News section to promote the school recent activities.


Alerts are a recent addition to Athena. They can be prewritten and approved by senior management team then displayed on the site by authorised staff. This functionality was recently put in to use at Withinfield Primary School when a server weather warning was issued for the area, although the school avoided the worst of the snow and the school remained open the site saw 50 times the expected traffic for a normally Thursday with 17 hits as early as 6 AM!

The site can be maintained from any computer with an internet connection and mainstream browser.
