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.

Prep

DBR 0007

The purpose of Prep is to develop the cultural capital and cultural competence of our students through a variety of home learning tasks. Prep should develop the independence of students through cross curricular links and contextual wider reading.

Subjects work together to set a prep pack with a task from each subject. Tasks should take up to an hour to complete but can take man forms; they could be a project, research task, a written piece, quizzes. Tasks will connect to the learning for that term whilst linking to the intent for prep. 

Info 18 Prep

Prep packs are handed out and collected in by tutors. Students will then complete a 'prep quiz' in tutor time.

Knowledge organisers

A knowledge organiser (KO) sets out the important, useful and powerful knowledge on a topic on a single page (Kirby, 2015). With the content demands of new courses, and schools adopting a knowledge-based curriculum, these are becoming increasingly popular in schools at secondary and even primary level.

For students to succeed in a particular area, they must have a foundation of factual knowledge, understand those facts in the context of a conceptual framework and organise knowledge in order to facilitate retrieval and application (Bransford et al., 2000). We can see knowledge organisers as a way to enable this, in a much more systematic way than traditional revision guides and textbooks
