We prioritise long term relationships over short term gain. We work hard to understand the needs of each school that we work with and we recognise that every school is unique with their own community, culture and recruitment challenges. This allows us to work in partnership with our schools and offer them more than just their cover needs filled.
Don't believe us?
Here are what some of the schools we partner with, say about working with Flourish Education:
"We have been working with Flourish for some months now and we are extremely happy with the service. Always professional and friendly and on hand whenever we need them. I big shout to Savvas who checks in with us weekly to make sure everything is running smoothly with our supply teacher."
Primary School, Cirencester
"Fraser has always provided excellent support to school taking prompt action to fill both daily absence and long term vacancies or making me aware quickly if it is unlikely cover can be found.
Three weeks ago I received a large number of phone calls on a Sunday evening from staff unable to come into work due to illness. I contacted Fraser hoping he would begin to tackle this first thing Monday and prepared myself for an anxious wait. However, Fraser picked up my message on the Sunday, contacted teachers and TA's and filled all absences that evening. I can not tell you how grateful I was."
Head Teacher, Primary School, Wolverhampton
" I have been using Flourish Education since we opened.
Your team have always been efficient in supplying us with supply staff when needed...even at the drop of a hat!
It can be trial and error getting the perfect supply as our school require very experienced SEN staff but Flourish always manage to deliver.
I would like to give Richard Preece a particular mention as he paid our school a visit a few weeks ago which enabled him to see first hand what the needs of our children are, which in turn gives him a good idea of what supply will fit the bill.
Thank you for your dedication last year Rich, I look forward to working with you in 23/24."
Business Support Office, Primary Academy, Wednesbury
"I would like to commend Libby and the wonderful service she offers us as an Academy.
Nothing is ever too much – even when it is!
Libby makes herself available at all times and her help and support has been invaluable over this last 12 months that we have been using Flourish."
Operations Manager, Primary Academy, Birmingham
"Flourish Education has provided teachers and support staff to us for a number of years. Richard our consultant, works hard to match the right candidate for our school's specific needs. They have been able to provide teachers on a long-term placement in addition to specialist support staff. They are also available early on each day for last minute cover. I would recommend Flourish Education for your cover needs."
Primary School, Sandwell
"Since working with Flourish Education, the process that we go through when booking both long term and last minute supply has improved immensely. Our contact, Fraser, often goes above and beyond to meet the needs of our school. Regardless of the situation, he will go out of his way to offer support wherever he can and it allows us to function as a school much more efficiently. Fraser has been able to provide us with some fantastic supply teachers, some of which have gone on to join us full time. We are really grateful to be able to work with Fraser, and Flourish Education, to continue to offer the best education we can to our students."
Assistant Head Teacher, Wolverhampton Primary School
"Thank you to all of the Flourish team for their help this year, it has been very much appreciated. Particular thanks to Fraser who has provided invaluable help and support, often at short notice and always with a friendly and helpful attitude. We look forward to working with you again in the new academic year."
Primary School Business Manager, Wolverhampton
"We’ve started using Flourish this year as other schools in our MAT have. I have found them to be reliable, flexible and professional. My contact Richard communicates with us effectively and always responds. He listens to what we need and always tries to fulfil this but is honest and quick to respond if he can’t allowing us to make alternative plans. Great service and excellent contact. Thank you!"
Deputy Headteacher, Halesowen Primary School
"We haven't really used Flourish for our supply in the past, however, we will be using them a lot more moving forwards. Fraser has been a fantastic help to our school, maintaining effective communication with us throughout and always being available when needed. The teacher they provided us with has done a great job and we are really pleased with the entire experience. I would highly recommend Flourish Education."
Assistant Headteacher, Grove Primary School, Wolverhampton
"Flourish have been really efficient in providing us with supply teachers and support staff, whether these have been on long term placements or day cover. Glenn is always helpful and makes sure the candidate is the right fit for the needs of the role. He often saves the day when we need last minute cover!"
Primary School, Redditch
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Flourish Education for supporting us with our needs. Fraser has always been at the end of the phone to provide us with any staffing needs and to support with any issues we may have. He has a friendly yet professional approach and goes the extra mile! We will look forward to continuing to work with the staff at Flourish."
Primary School, Wolverhampton
"I would heartily recommend Flourish for any and all your staffing needs. We have worked with them for over 7 years and they consistently supply us with first class professionals - teachers and TAs - more often than not, with little or no notice! We can always be confident of the quality and ability of their team which gives us real peace of mind. What really helps us in school, is that Jo and now Scott, always try to ensure that the staff they send are consistent, so we and the children are able to build strong relationships with them, they can learn our routines and become part of our school family. The support Jo in particular gave us over COVID19 was outstanding! We could not have kept school open as much as we did without her."

"Lizzy, my consultant knows me, she knows my school, she knows my needs and expectations. She delivers on that knowledge each time I need her."

"Joanne is always friendly, professional and honest. She also doesn't constantly pester us like some other Teaching Agencies do. Her approach towards supporting our school with agency staff is perfect."
Wolverhampton Primary School
"Glenn is always honest and tries his best to find me exactly what we need. Deals with texts and calls out of hours. We have really appreciated him the last couple of years! He always resolves any issues with sensitivity and efficiently."
