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.

School Meals

Our school lunches are provided by Aspens, who create a delicious and balanced menu for our pupils. School meals cost £2.25 per meal.

Packed Lunches

If you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch, it is important that it supports our school ethos around healthy lifestyle choices.

Therefore all packed lunches should:

  • Be NUT free. This is essential for supporting pupils and staff with allergies and keeping all members of our community safe. This includes hazelnut chocolate spreads.
  • Follow NHS guidelines on healthy lunch choices 
    • Swap high sugar snacks for low sugar choices
    • Contain at least one piece of fruit or vegetable (bite sized pieces where possible - particularly grapes which must be halved to reduce the risk of choking)
    • Contain high fibre options to support pupils feeling fuller for longer
  • Where packed lunches are not in line with this guidance, high sugar snacks may be limited and member of staff will discuss suitable alternatives with you.
