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.

Home Learning

The following principles underpin our approach to homework and home learning:

  1. The nature and quality of the homework is just as important and may be more important than the time spent completing it
  2. Homework that includes preparation and practice is likely to be more effective than homework concerned only with curriculum content
  3. Homework plays a critical role in achievement and motivation: it gives children positive beliefs about achievement as well as strategies for coping with mistakes, difficulties and setbacks
  4. Homework can encourage children to have a sense of responsibility for their own learning
  5. Homework can encourage children to study independently
  6. Homework should strengthen the partnership between school and parents
  7. Homework should provide greater opportunities for parents to engage with their child’s learning

Homework Policy

For children in Key Stage 2, home learning is set each week through Google Classroom.

As a school we have access to a number of platforms to support home learning:

Letter-Join (Handwriting)

Collins Big Cats (Reading)

Mathletics (Maths)

Times Table Rockstars (Maths)

If you need any login details for your child, please speak to your child's teacher or contact the School Office.
