GLF Schools

GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

At Glyn, PSHCE education is a strategically planned programme through which our young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future

It helps to safeguard students, support their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and promotes thoughtful and articulate discussion on relevant issues in their lives.

PSCHE is taught during Form time by Form Tutors. Each Year group follows a unique set of programme of study - please see programme below for details:
