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.

Safeguarding

Safeguarding Statement

Aureus Primary School and GLF Schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and Procedures in place which can be viewed on our website. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and School Strategy Board members) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Sometimes, we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about student welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about students are discussed with his or her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the student’s welfare.
