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.

Diversity and Inclusion

 

What Diversity and Inclusion Means to us

Diversity and Inclusion needs to be at the heart of what we do and embedded in our culture and values, our staff, our CPD, our curriculum and our pedagogy and practice.

‘Proud to value Diversity and Inclusion’

GLF Schools recognises and celebrates the diversity of its schools and their communities. There is a shared commitment across the Trust to develop further a culture of respect, where discrimination is not tolerated, and individuals are treated equitably and fairly and feel a sense of belonging. We strive for an inclusive environment where staff, children and students are comfortable to express their own identity, should they wish, in which diversity and inclusion is of mutual benefit for everyone in our schools.

Our Diversity Statement:

Through a diverse and inclusive workplace, we will:

  • further develop and strengthen our diversity and inclusion

  • align with our values of respect, dignity,  fairness and equality of opportunity

  • create an inclusive environment where all colleagues can be themselves at work and perform at their best, feel valued and have a sense of belonging

  • meet skills demands by acquiring and retaining the best available talent, enhancing our capacity for high performance, creativity and innovation 

  • enrich all that we do  through a diverse range of skills, knowledge and perspective

  • better represent the communities we serve
