50 Things To Post On Your School Facebook Page

50 Things To Post On Your School Facebook Page

Facebook is a great way to engage and communicate with your school’s audience and can be a fantastic partner to your school website.

An incredible 2 billion users log on every single day with an amazing 147,000 images uploaded and 57,000 links shared every second! (source).

To stand out on Facebook and keep your parents engaging with your Facebook page can be a little intimidating at first.

The key to a successful school Facebook page is to create a variety of content that showcases your school and keeps parents up to date on recent events.

In order to help we have created a list of 50 things you could add to your school Facebook page.


Photos

School photography does not just need to be pro shots. Sometimes the best shots are the ad hoc ones.

  1. School photo of the day
  2. Child of the day
  3. Updated pictures of your classes
  4. School assembly
  5. Lunchtime
  6. School on a sunny day
  7. School trips
  8. Morning drop-off
  9. Sporting events
  10. Performing arts events
  11. Food at lunch
  12. Staff members at work
  13. Backstage during a performance
  14. Alumni
  15. Old pics from the school archives
  16. Student artwork
  17. Children engaging with teachers

Videos

A 30 second video can capture a moment much better than a handful of photos. Again it does not need to be pro quality. Most smartphones are more than capable. One of your clients – Two Mile Ash School take this to the next level and really show what can be achieved with some creativity and a real passion for video in schools. Take a look at their Youtube channel to really get inspired.

  1. A day in the life from student perspective
  2. A day in the life from teacher perspective
  3. Special announcements
  4. Sporting/Performance Arts
  5. School trips
  6. Breaktimes/Children at play
  7. Video tour of the school
  8. Year 6 leavers memories
  9. Latest school news
  10. Student interviews
  11. Teacher interviews
  12. Message from the headteacher

  3. Sports schedules
  4. Lunch menu
  5. Parent information
  6. Interesting student assignments

'I love our academy website and brochure! From the start of the idea to it's completion, Jason supported us with his experience and technical advice! We often have comments from parents, new staff and visitors about how easy to use it is and how it gives such a good impression of the academy. We are always looking at ways to improve the ways in which we share information on the website and have constant ideas for improvements. With Jason supporting and advising us this is easy to achieve. Great service, thank you!'
