Your School’s Details

In an effort to find out more about our users, cut down spam and guarantee our service is for educational use, we will now require each blog to be attached to a school.

It’s a very simple process; if you’re registering a new blog you’ll be asked to type in your school’s name as part of the sign up process, if you’ve already got a blog you’ll see a new red bar at the top of any admin page that will direct you to the settings page to fill in your details. If your school doesn’t exist in our database you can contact us via our Support Website and we’ll add it for you. We use our My School Holidays service for the database which pulls data from around the world continually, so most if not all schools should be there.

We hope in the future to link allow an overview page of all the Primary Technology services that you use that are attached to your school, making it easier to navigate between them.

    Hi – I am a freelance history teacher and I use my blog http://balestrahistory.primaryblogger.co.uk/ as a teaching aid for the pupils. As such I am not attached to a particular school – is this a problem? I hope not as I have put a lot of work into it and the pupils love it!

    Thanks

    It’s best to add a school you have worked with, as we stated in the post it’s to cut down on spam signups and guarantee educational use, so as long as you’ve worked with a school you could just use their name instead.

    Cheers,

    Ed

    Hi

    I have tried to add my school to my blog but it is not working. When I type in the name the school appears in your database but there is no button to link it to my blog.

    Thanks,

    Lindsay

  19. P1Children says:

  20. Ed Cooper says:

    Hi, the school is definitely in our database. All you need to do is type it in and click on the school name, it will then let you carry on with the signup process.

  21. Ross Mannell says:

    I have seen the new request for my school. I must point out I am a retired teacher working from home here in Australia and therefore do not have a school to list. I keep access to Primary Blogger as part of the work online I do with classes. Being logged in to Primary Blogger allows easier access for commenting on some of their blogs.

    Here is one of my blogs as an example of the online work I do with students….
    http://rossmannellcomments.edublogs.org/

    I can’t find any listing for dealing with retired teachers but perhaps there should be as I still have much to contribute to students in retirement, especially as I now consider myself part of a global classroom. :)

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Ross,

    You may sign up using your old school’s details, we mainly ask for school details to combat spammers and non-edu users.

    Cheers,

  46. Thanks Emma for adding my school.
    My students feel so happy to start blogging this semester.
    I appreciate your time!

  47. Hi Emma,
    I’m so sorry for asking my questions.
    What does “null” mean in my school’s name?

    I can see it in the drop down list as follows:

    EL-Hag Hadad Secondary School (null)

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
    Azhar

  48. Emma Rothery says:

    Hi

    The null is present just because your school doesn’t have a postal code, it shouldn’t be a problem. Have you been able to select your school and create your blog?

    Thanks
    Emma

  49. Dear Emma,
    Thanks for your response.

    Yes, I created my blog and my students will start blogging this week.
    Really, I appreciate your time and effort.

    Thanks
    Heidi

  51. Emma Rothery says:

    Hi Heidi

    Thanks for getting in touch. I found your school in our database and they entry didn’t have a postcode so I have added that in. Hopefully now the school will come up in the search results. If it doesn’t, please let me know and we will set up the blog for your colleague.

    Many thanks
    Emma

    Can you add Brier Park School?

  57. Emma Rothery says:

    Hi

    I’m afraid we can only add UK-based schools to the list, however if you just select another school from the list you’ll be able to create your blog and start bloggging.

    Many thanks
