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.

Art and Design

Learning skills and techniques in art and design gives children a visual language which helps them to express ideas and process their thoughts. Art and design lessons provide opportunities for children to work in ways that differ from the other subject areas and support the development of well-rounded children. 


What does art look like at our school?

Art Lead - Miss S Smith

Pupils develop their skills through increasing their knowledge and understanding of a range of materials and techniques whilst exploring colour, shape, pattern and texture to express their ideas.  They begin to ask questions and learn about other artists and art from a variety of cultures. They explore how the art was made, what it was made from and their thoughts and feelings regarding each piece. The artwork the pupils produce always links to the current terms topic so that they are able to use knowledge learnt and experiences had from the wider curriculum to inform their ideas. 

This year we will be holding an Art Week in order to raise the profile of the subject and promote creativity across the school.
