12 Day School Support (Cedar)


Our Cedar School Support package provides 12 days of guidance from a dedicated Grow adviser to help you achieve better outcomes for your school and students. Through a bespoke programme of visits and agreed areas of focus, we will work with you to identify, plan and implement key priorities in order to drive school improvement.

The Grow Leadership Partners reinforced my leadership aims and delivered honest and knowledgeable feedback, which was grounded in a wealth of experience of schools and inspections. The impact of their insightful observations in my school has been a swift change in teaching and learning strategies. These changes over time will enable our children to thrive academically and improve their outcomes.

How it works:

You will be appointed a dedicated Grow Leadership Partner who will personally work with you, and your senior leadership team, across your school priorities. We may also broker specialist expertise if you feel that there are specific areas of concern that need to be addressed.

We will operate as part of your team, but will maintain an ‘external’ viewpoint in terms of analysis and advice – critical when judging the best course of action. This also helps you to demonstrate that your school is outward facing, reflective and seeks expertise to strengthen existing practice.

Our Cedar package delivers 12 days of guidance and is ideal if you require significant additional capacity and support to build immediate and effective improvements. At all times, you can rely on:

  • dedicated email and telephone support and advice from your Grow Leadership Partner and our experienced administrative team.
  • flexibility and responsiveness in our approach, allowing you to react as swiftly as required.
  • access to updated policies, documents and resources.

We can also provide additional focus review, headteacher appraisal and governance support if you choose to allocate extra time to these areas.
