In September 2022, schools across the country, and particularly, it seemed among our client base, faced new inspections from Ofsted, who had some catching up to do after the delays of previous years.
Gorse Hill Primary School in Swindon was one of the first to receive the results back from the early school year inspection. Reflecting their hard work, and the effectiveness of their long term plan, they achieved a ‘Good’ rating, improving from previously being rated as ‘Requires Improvement.’
While this was fantastic news, without being publicised, it would not have much impact on the school’s reputation. At Eduprise, we were tasked with turning the news, and Ofsted’s wordy and technical report, into positive press, making the most out of the news to improve the school’s local standing as much as possible.
Keeping in as close contact with the school Principal, Luke Graham, as possible, the marketing team quickly put together a press release, written content for the school website, summarising the report, and a range of social media posts for the schools different channels.
Once the school was authorised by Ofsted to share the results, everything was ready to make a big splash in the school community and in the local area.
In addition, Eduprise also acted quickly to update the school website with all new imagery reflecting the school’s new Ofsted status, making sure that anyone visiting the school website immediately knew about their success.
What They Said
Gorse Hill Principal Luke Graham said, “I was really impressed with the speed and effectiveness that Eduprise took our report and got us in the local press and updated our website.”
“The report was a great result for us, and the team at Eduprise gave it the coverage it deserved!”
