WARRINGTON based Morgan branding digital agency have helped deliver virtual tours for local schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The “dollhouse” style tours have enabled parents and pupils to get an insight into the schools without the need to visit.
Morgan Branding Director Callum Morgan said: “We have been working with what feels like every school in Warrington, but I know in reality it’s only a very small proportion!
We started by doing a virtual tour for Glazebury Primary School which was then picked up by other schools that had been struggling with open evenings/days due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“So in order to still be able to showcase their space to new parents, they have been using our virtual tours.
There are all sorts of other benefits that we have previously discussed with schools like helping anxious parents or children to show them the space that they will be going into.
It can provide huge benefits for special educational needs and disabled children to be able to show them space before they attend school.
Commenting on the virtual school tour experience Glazebury Head Teacher said: “Morgan Branding provides a very professional service that brings the school environment right to our parents and children.
“It enables you to visit the classes virtually and walk around the school so to speak at your leisure. The tour shows the school to its very best and is instrumental for showcasing our school to prospective parents and children whilst also serving as a visual aid for our SEND children.
“It has been so useful to combat any anxieties about knowing what our school looks like with Covid restrictions. Thanks to Callum and his team for providing this fantastic marketing tool to our school during these times when we cannot welcome visitors in the usual manner into our school to look round.
