Budgets are tight for everyone these days, especially in the education sector. The Government haven't raised funding in line with growing classrooms, which is impacting everything, from hiring experienced teachers to funding basic requirements - some schools have even put a cap on photocopying.
If this resonates with you, then a website from Venture will certainly help your budget. We have implemented a website scrappage scheme that replaces your current website, with a new one - for free. A new DforE compliant website will cost in the region of £7,000 - £10,000, which is a large proportion of any schools budget. There are companies out there which will do it for less - but don't sacrifice quality where it matters, ensuring the website build is DforE compliant.
We are only running this scheme until the 1st February 2018, but we will honour any enquiries made before that date with a free redesign when taking out a manage plan with our company. Contact our team for more information on 0800 970 9165 or email email@example.com and we will assist you where possible!
We're continuing to work closely with Ash Manor School - and in particular Headteacher Agnes Bailey who recently asked us if we could redesign the school website. Not only did we say yes, we said we'd do it for free! Every school who chooses a managed plan with Venture get a free redesign every year (if required). Ultimately, technology evolves, which means websites evolve too. So if you put your faith in our company, we'll repay it spades by not only looking after your website, but also giving you a redesign that would normally cost in the region of £2,500 - FOR FREE.
Ash Manor's new website consists of a responsive design, new call to action areas, integrated calendar systems and a new blog that is integrated into the school website, acting as a news feed for both students and parents. That's not even mentioning the ongoing support they receive from us that includes unlimited updates, banner design for events (such as school plays, open evenings and parents evenings).

I cannot recommend this web design company enough. They are always on hand to make any amendments or additions that we request on our managed website, very quickly. Lisa Bowman, Ash Manor School

Compliant Website Build
We'll start with the most important area of a website build for education websites - compliancy. Your website is more than just a online brochure for parents and students to use. All of our websites are built following guidance outlined by the Department for Education, in particular, the Equality Act 2010.
The Equality Act was written to ensure everyone is treated fairly, without being restricted in areas surrounding disabilities. Let's take people who are visually impaired. Websites should be built to cater for people who have visual impairments - whether the user is blind, partially blind or colour blind.
If a website is built properly, then a visually impaired user will be able to use the website with the assistance of a speech browser. This will assist with pictorial descriptions and other content within your website for a complete and fluid user experience. In an instance where a user is colour blind, the websites we build will ensure certain colours don't conflict, making it difficult for the user to decipher text and other web content.
By having a website built by Venture, you will receive a compliant, well built digital platform.
