PrimarySite, the UK’s leading provider of websites for primary schools and academies, has extended its digital communications portfolio with the addition of a media sharing channel for schools. Continuing in its mission to help teachers and pupils engage beyond the classroom, schools will now be able to share video and audio recordings of students’ work and activities with parents, carers and the whole community, to support learning outside school and encourage parental involvement.
The Video Sharing Platform, which allows teachers and pupils to easily upload and share content, is available as an enhancement to an existing PrimarySite school website, or as a standalone feature.
The platform has been specifically designed for schools, offering safe and secure usage, which is completely ad-free, easy-to-use and helps to meet the requirements of the computing curriculum.
Geoff Millington, former primary school teacher and managing director of PrimarySite, said: “With so many schools doing great things and achieving fantastic results for their pupils, we wanted to create a platform that enables these successes to be shared quickly and easily. We hope our new offering will provide a really simple way to engage with the whole school community, while encouraging the pupils to get involved in creating and sharing content too!”
“We recently conducted a survey with parents, and the results definitely confirmed that the demand is there. Drawing from a sample of 1,450 parents, half of all respondents answered that they’d like to see photographs and videos on their child’s school website, and 38 per cent wanted to see more pupil content.”
