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.

Attendance & Absence

Regular attendance is extremely important, and we do ask that students keep their attendance above 95% to ensure they do not miss out on vital learning. We do however understand that there may be occasions where students are ill or have appointments they need to attend during the school day. All student absences should be notified via the dedicated school absence email address, whether it is sickness or a scheduled appointment during the school day.
