The Caretakers' Website is a non-profit making personal website. The Site was started in 2001 to provide a service to School Caretakers. The design and layout of the site was created by myself , when I was a Site Manager at Filsham Valley School in St.Leonards on Sea, East Sussex. A position I held for 16 years.
I could not run a site of this magnitude totally alone. I rely heavily on the good will and support from many School Caretakers who are registered Caretakers' Website forum members who are prepared to offer their time to contribute toward the site free of charge. This also means that most of the content on this site has been written for Caretakers, by Caretakers which helps create a friendly community atmosphere.
We are a non-profit site. All the services we provide on our website are free for the end user. We do not have pop up adverts to annoy you and we will never sell, share or intentionally give away your personal details. We endeavour to make your experience on our website safe and as secure as possible.
The site has grown over the past few years and we get around 35-40,000 unique visitors every month. We get around 2 million page hits a month. To cope with this demand, in March 2005 we completely redesigned our website to reduce the load on the server. In August 2007, we changed to a new server host with a more professional approach, who was better equiped to meet our requirements. In 2014 we upgraded the main website to use the very latest content management system.
In May 2017 we changed our domain name from a .net to a co.uk domain.
We hope you enjoy your visit and hope that you find our website useful and you visit us again.
