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.

Our Values and Purpose

As a delivery partner across all out programmes, we will work in partnership with all stakeholders to enable our colleagues to grow, learn and flourish. 

As a TSH we are committed to: 

  • We embrace challenges and feedback as an opportunity for growth and development. 

  • We communicate respectfully, creating an environment that supports learning and growth. 

  • We share up-to-date educational professional development evidence and insights to support all colleagues' development relevant to all our programmes. 

  • We continually reflect on and evaluate the processes we deploy to improve participant learning. 

  • We ensure all our programmes are high-quality and aim to impact teacher and leader development positively, with consideration of workload and well-being of all participants. 

  • We provide the time, space, expert facilitators and supportive professional networks to allow all participants to flourish. We believe in equitable partnerships, ensuring equal access to all programmes for all the schools we work with. 

  •  We value and promote diversity within and beyond our region across all our TSH work. 

GLF West Sussex TSH’s commitment to EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) ensures fair treatment, belonging and equal opportunities for all who work with us. 
  • GLF West Sussex Teaching School Hub welcomes a diverse community of staff and pupils. We seek to develop a community whose members value each other's differences and who all contribute to the Teaching School Hub’s aims of being a place where everyone belongs. 

  • We seek to create a supportive and equitable environment where all staff, partners and participants are given the support needed to realise their goals and aspirations. 

  • We seek to remove the barriers that prevent historically disadvantaged groups from engaging in TSH programmes or realising their potential as a teacher or leader. 

  • No one from the protected characteristics will be accorded less favourable treatment. The nine protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 are; age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. 

  • We encourage and support applications from under-represented and disadvantaged participants through our marketing, recruitment and on-boarding and support process across all TSH programmes.
