Monday December 1 will go down as a day to remember for everyone associated
with Whyteleafe School as it is the day the school becomes part of the GLF
Schools multi academy trust.
In its most recent Ofsted inspection, the two-form entry primary school was
rated as good in all areas, and it now hopes to prosper even more thanks to
the benefits of being a member of the GLF Schools network.
“This is a momentous occasion for everyone associated with Whyteleafe –
children, staff, parents and our whole wider school family,” said head
teacher Anthony Marsh. “Our motto is Aim High, Be Independent, Enjoy
Yourself. I hope that this new era for the school as part of the GLF will
further encourage our children to strive to live up to all those ambitions –
and attract the next generation of children to Whyteleafe as well.”
Children will mark the new era in a more informal, fun way on Thursday
December 4 when they take part in a day of craft activities, and a huge
celebratory cake will be cut in the school hall. GLF representatives will
also be in attendance, to talk about their work at other member schools
across Surrey and Berkshire, and explain what Whyteleafe can expect from the
next exciting chapter in the school’s history.
GLF Schools, which strives to help children to grow, learn and flourish, is
a group of non-selective schools, across the primary, secondary and special
sectors run on a co-operative basis, steered by the schools’ headteachers.
The group was established just over two years ago, and Whyteleafe joining
takes its membership up to 12 schools. Plans are already well under way for
several more schools to become part of it, in moves which will see the group
expand into Sussex and Oxfordshire.
