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.

Fees, Funding & Sessions

Our Nursery year starts in September and runs through until July, this is called an academic year.

Nursery is open 9am - 3pm Monday to Friday during term time, which supports the school day and our school holiday periods are also the same.

We offer fully funded Nursery places with no hidden charges. Parents who can claim the early years funded entitlement can take their funding between the main Nursery opening hours of 9am to 3pm (from September 2023). If your child is not old enough for funding or does not meet eligibility for the extended entitlement, parents are offered the opportunity to pay for a place at our Nursery. Remember you may also be able to access other financial support towards your childcare costs, such as tax-free childcare.

ALL children are eligible for 15 hours of Nursery funding a week from the term after they turn three, this is called the "universal offer" (please refer to the website below for exact dates). 

Working parents may be eligible for an additional 15 hours a week, an extended entitlement and often called "30 hours funding".

Some two-year-olds may also be eligible for funding from the term after they turn two.
