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

WM F,F and SOur Nursery year starts in September and runs through until July, this is called an academic year. Nursery is open 8:45am- 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 Monday to Thursday, 8.45am to 3.00pm and Friday 8.45am to 1.45pm with the option to purchase to 3.00pm. 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".

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

The Government has recently announced changes to early years funding which will be phased in from April 2024. Once we have more detail via the Government and Local Authority, we can review our current nursery offer to see how we might be able to support some of the changes for our local community.
