What is GROW?

GROW is the name given to an enhanced provision established for children whose progression in their current school is of concern due to barriers caused by behaviour, emotional well-being needs or social difficulties. Some of these children will have had early childhood trauma and attachment difficulties, some will have other diagnosed difficulties such as ADHD.

The GROW continuum is from 'early intervention' through to 'sustaining intervention' on a mainstream primary school site. There is also a more intensive provision off the mainstream site for children with more complex needs, when inclusion in a mainstream school is not yet appropriate. Each provides an inclusive continuum of education provision for primary aged children with emotional well-being and social difficulties.

     
Types of GROW    

 

Early Intervention

  • For children who are at a possible risk of fixed term exclusion or from permanent exclusion in the mainstream primary school.

Sustaining Intervention

  • For children when they have an Education, Health and Care Plan and the mainstream placement is fragile/close to break down.
  • For children when they have an Education, Health and Care Plan and the provision has been identified by the LA Statutory Assessment service as an alternative to a LA special school place because there is no capacity or it is not the parental preference or as an alternative to and out of authority specialist provision.

Intensive Intervention

  • For children when they have an Education, Health and Care Plan and the provision has been identified by the LA Statutory Assessment service as an alternative to a LA special school place because there is no capacity or it is not the parental preference or as an alternative to and out of authority specialist provision.
