Success stories

We’ve provided specialist support to governing bodies, just like yours! 

We use Juniper for several services, all of which are very good and extremely helpful. In terms of specific readiness for Ofsted and from a governor's perspective, Juniper helped us break it down. For example, our clerk recommended some specific training, which we did do. That enabled us to start thinking in a structured way about what was it we needed and how we could improve. Once we had our gap analysis, we were able to move forward and do some remedial training which really helped on the day.
Chair of Governors, Queen Boudica Primary School
I would like to extend my gratitude to our Juniper Education Clerk who supported the Appeals Panel for our new intake appeals. Her knowledge and professionalism is exemplary, and was always so helpful to me. We had 21 appeals heard over 2 days this year, which was extremely hectic, but despite the pressure, our Clerk managed the days efficiently and calmly, and made sure everything ran smoothly. I am so grateful to her for all her help and support, both for this year and in previous years. She is a pleasure to work with.
