Who we are

Small enough to know you personally, big enough to meet your every need.

We are a group of dedicated, highly experienced individuals across multiple, complementary services working together to raise standards, deliver lasting school improvement and improve outcomes for all children and young people.

"The service is efficient, reliable and supportive. Since moving our EWS to Octavo, our attendance has improved and matters are dealt with swiftly. The support we receive has been great including support for parents, students and staff."
