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.

We use the Charanga Musical School scheme of work as it is a fun, modern way of teaching music for children to enjoy. It also allows staff to teach music confidently. The scheme covers all areas of the National Curriculum for music, such as listening and appraising a range of music styles from around the world. Key vocabulary terms are introduced and there are many opportunities to embed practice using instruments.

What does Music look like at our school? 

Music Lead - Mrs C Humphries 

At Lightwater Village school, our music curriculum encompasses the objectives from the National Curriculum through both class-based teaching. Music as a subject within the National Curriculum has a role to provide children with musical experiences and knowledge in performing, composing and learning to read and play music. 

This year we are establishing a Choir Club for pupils. In addition to this, we have Music Assemblies linked to our topic themes and our pupils have the opportunity to perform for the community. A Musical highlight is our Caribbean Steel Drum Workshop!
