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.

History at Lightwater Village School aims to provide pupils with a thorough understanding of the past of both Britain and the wider world. We aim to ensure that children are able to think critically when examining evidence and can develop their own opinions, which they can then back up with their historical knowledge.


What does History look like in our school?

History Lead - Miss S Smith

We teach History through discrete lessons that link to our over-arching topic, guided by the national curriculum and historical enquiry skills. 

This year we have prospective trips organised for the National History Museum.
