The Challenge 

Pilton Infants' School in Devon wanted to upgrade its website, not just because it was outdated but also because the school was joining the Team Academy Trust, so aligning its website with the Trust's style was crucial. Having collaborated with Juniper Education on previous website projects, the Trust sought the expertise of Juniper’s website designers. Time was a critical factor; Juniper needed to swiftly gather assets and build the site to allow ample time for content addition before the Academy joined the Trust. Nonetheless, Juniper’s team of experts gladly embraced the challenge.

Our Project Manager let us know what we needed to do and by when, and gave support on anything we weren’t sure about. I would recommend Juniper’s services to other school leaders.

The Project 

Led by a dedicated Website Project Manager, Juniper ensured a smooth transition, maintaining regular contact for progress updates through the communication platform Basecamp for transparent collaboration. 

Gathering Assets  

Despite the school's deadline for integration set for November 1, 2023, Juniper efficiently gathered assets by late August. This allowed for the swift construction of the website, providing a 6-7 week window to update content. 

Publishing Content  

In mid-October, when 15 pages of content arrived, Juniper promptly uploaded and formatted them within 48 hours. This quick action offered the school an early preview of content templates within the CMS. 

A Successful Launch  

Although the site wasn't fully prepared for the November 1st launch due to unavoidable content delays, Juniper adapted by maintaining consistent communication and rapidly addressing queries. As a result, the site was successfully launched in early December, ensuring readiness for when the school joined the Trust.
