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.

Childhood Thrive Practitioner Course

Our trainers recommend that, where possible, at least two Practitioners are trained in each school to support each other. Delegates need to be selected carefully and be given protected time to attend the course and complete weekly course work which involves working with an individual and a small group and online learning.

Schools will need to ensure that the correct number of site licenses for Thrive Online are purchased directly though Thrive prior to the course beginning. This is usually the number on roll to enable teachers to assess and target their class’s needs from a “right time” perspective as well as the Practitioner doing reparative work.

Information and the contact number to do this can be found here: 


Course Dates: 

All sessions will be on a via Zoom from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Our trainers recommend that where there are occasional weeks without training the delegates are allowed protected course work time rather than being used in class.
