Website Essentials (reviewed October 2018)
 

The Department for Education expects schools to update their websites as soon as possible after a change or at least annually. The Bulwell Academy website is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure the Academy follows the UK government's guidance regarding the information that academies should publish online. A full website audit is also undertaken annually by Raise Education to ensure that our website meets statutory requirements. The last audit by Raise Education took place in February 2018. The Raise Education logo (left) shows that our website meets statutory requirements.
