Gateway Engage
Website Administrator

The Website Administrator is responsible for:

  • Checking that the information posted on the site is factually correct
  • Making sure a consistent house style such as font/colours/line spacing is used.  This makes it easier for the user to use and identify.
  • Making sure your site is not overpopulated with irrelevant details.  Keep it simple
  • Keeping your site up to date and archiving any information which is no longer current.
  • Giving each page a title for ease of access for the user.
  • Keeping language and presentation plain and simple.  A variety of users will visit your site and you should avoid jargon and acronyms.
  • Checking that you have parent/carer’s permission to include children/young people’s work/photographs onto the site.  Websites that contain images of children should never include any personal details such as names, postal addresses, phones or fax numbers or email addresses.
  • Making sure that you don’t break copyright laws.  For example, your site must not include photographs taking by a photographer and published on the internet without permission from the photographer. Also, you may not copy large amounts of text written by someone else, even if you give them recognition for this.  You can ask a site if they will allow you to copy their work.  You can link to another site without permission (although it is considered good practice to do so).
  • Meeting with other staff and colleagues to decide what are the aims and objectives of your site.
  • Checking your material for appropriateness and quality.
  • Allocating time to keep website up to date.
