School website audit

Website 900x430

A school website check is usually an inspector's first task during Ofsted inspection. You can use Compliance Tracker to audit your own site and ensure that your school will pass. Compliance Tracker is completely free to members of The Key for School Leaders.


How to conduct your audit

Number of requirements: 19 (maintained), 21 (academies)

1. Go to the 'School website' area

2. Make yourself the owner of the area via the drop down menu

3. Go to the first requirement and read through the details

4. Go to your own website, find the page, check whether it's compliant and:
