3 Day School Support (Oak)


Our Oak School Support package provides 3 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.

We’ve bought into Grow's Oak School Support package for many years now and feel it is really good value for money. When the purse strings tighten some things have to go, but we keep this service because it provides high quality support, including access to a range of excellent consultants skilled in providing everything you require. Leading a school is extremely hard work but it’s good to know you have the right support on the end of the phone. We simply couldn’t do it without Grow.

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 Oak package delivers 3 days of guidance, where 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.
