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.

Remote Learning


Remote learning is where the student and the teacher are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment. The teacher provides the learning through Google Classroom and the child watches and or listens, and then attempts the activity. The work is generaly submitted through Google Classroom and the teacher then checks it, giving the appropriate guidance to encourage the child's learning. 

This page supplements the coronavirus page and provides current documentation to support the  Remote Learning in the 2021 lockdown.

This school year is like no other, and it requires our Chestnut Park Childrens to embrace our STRONG  values o more than ever so they continue their learning journey within the 'Dream-Achieve-Inspire' ethos. We trust that this section of the website supports our families in accessing our remote provision. However, well being calls are made to those that are not on line learning each day- if we can be of further support, please do update our wellbeing team during the telephone call. 

Since January 2021, we have supported our students with over 250 chromebooks purchased by the school. This has enabled our online lessons to move to that of ‘live remote’ teaching and has therefore enabled access to education through the technology provided. We are proud of the progress made and continually strive to ensure we have all students actively engaged in learning during this time
