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.

How do we teach at Aureus Primary?

We have an agreed approach for teaching and learning in our school that is implemented from nursery right through to Year 6.  It provides a template by which consistency of pedagogy is developed and maintained. It also reflects the aims and objectives the school and supports its vision.  Furthermore, our approach is grounded in evidence based academic research, particularly that of the Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) which emphasises that in order for children to be successful learners, unnecessary distractions and complications need to be strip away; allowing the learning to focus on the key information.  Please refer to the Teaching and Learning policy which is the resultant outworking of this theory also incorporating Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction.
