  • Training day for staff at Venture and today's foci are: Sensory needs, support and supervision and Sequencing across our curriculum. Hope our pupils are having a good day.

  • We are always amazed by the talents and skills of our pupils. B has been using art as a way to de-stress. She's really proud of how her technique has improved over a short space of time and so she should be. Always happy to share the great work of our young people.

  • Today 3 classes visited a local church as part of RE week. They were wonderful ambassadors for our school and in amongst the things they discovered there; in the visitors book was a letter from a gentleman who has been a pupil at River House school some 63 years ago. Serendipity?

  • An honour for our pupils to be invited to the Henley in Arden Remembrance Service at the memorial today to lay our wreath paid for with a donation to the Royal British Legion. Our pupils behaved impeccably and showed their respect for those lost to war. #ventureproud
