We are committed to using our specialist areas of expertise to support other schools.
Our staff have a strong track record of working with other schools to help them address specific issues and difficulties they face. Judith Woodfield, our Headteacher, is a National Leader of Education (NLE) and she can draw on our team of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) and Leading Practitioners (LPs) to provide targeted advice and support.
In addition, we have a team of high calibre professional services staff who are capable of supporting operational issues and non-teaching functions in schools who wish to draw on our support.
Schools who have asked us for support have told us they appreciate our style - we listen before we offer advice. We don't assume we have all the answers and we work with you to agree a way forward.
"The team from BGGS made a real difference. It felt like we were being supported by fellow professionals rather than being judged"
"Thank you for all the help and advice you gave. I really appreciated the way you took time to listen to me and to take our context onboard before you offered advice. I can't believe you made so many resources available to us after the visit too - I now feel equipped to tackle the issues in hand"
School Business Leader, Sandwell
