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.

The School Day

Our School Day
The school gates open at 8.45am and close at 9.00am.

We encourage parents to stagger their arrival to avoid crowding. Please note that we do not have any parent parking facilities and the school is located in a narrow street with no through way.

We kindly ask all parents to park away from the school and walk. This enables all pupils to arrive at school safely.

Final registration is at 9.00am for all pupils.

 

Pupils arriving after this time will be marked as late.

The school day finishes at 3.00pm for the Infants and 3.05pm for the Juniors.

 

After school the gates are open from 2.55pm until 3.15pm.

The timetable of the school day changes as pupils move through the school, matching the curriculum for each phase of their education. Below are some examples of the order of the day for each phase.
