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.

At Forge Wood, our intent is that music engages, inspires and enables all children to develop both musical talent and a lifelong love of music.

As they learn to express themselves through singing, playing instruments, improvising and composing, children will develop the self-confidence to share their skills and creativity.

Our music curriculum offers many different activities around the same musical concepts which are repeated and revisited over time, enabling a more secure, deeper knowledge and mastery of music skills.  We celebrate diversity through the development of our children’s knowledge of music across a variety of genres, traditions and historical periods. We develop oracy skills as children are exposed to appropriate musical terms and are encouraged to use these when discussing a range of music pieces.

We celebrate music and singing through performance and give our children opportunities to share their skills with different audiences in class assemblies and musical productions.

At Forge Wood, we believe these experiences enhance creativity, thinking skills and communication, as well as nurture our children’s health and well-being.
