A message from the Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor at Hartford Manor since 2013 when my son joined Nursery and I was appointed Chair of Governors in October 2022. School Governors work in partnership with the Principal and staff to ensure that our children receive the very best education and whole school experience at Hartford Manor.  

Governors are responsible for the strategic leadership of the school, but not its day-to-day management.   Strategic direction include:

        • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
        • Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
        • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The Governing Body are united by one thing: our commitment to see our school continue to make sustained improvements for the benefit of all our children. 

In the most recent Ofsted report in 2023, the inspector concluded, “Governors know the school and its community well. They fulfil their statutory duties
and offer appropriate support and challenge to leaders".

All our Governors are volunteers and drawn from different walks of life, and each one brings their own experience and expertise. 

If you would like to know more about the Governing Body and how to get involved, please contact me.  I can be contacted by email via [email protected]

Take Care
