Welcome to our website

I am delighted to be Principal of Hartford Manor Primary School and Nursery alongside our Head of School, Mrs Diamond. It is a very special place, serving all of Hartford and its wider community.

Education changes lives and I am passionate about ensuring all young people are given as many chances in life as possible. We seek to ensure this through a broad education focused on academic success, excellence in terms of care and welfare, and ensuring their talents and achievements are recognised.

When children leave Hartford Manor, I want them to be excited about the opportunities that exist for them and have the confidence and skills vital for success in life. Hartford Manor is an excellent school, where the children leave ready for the next stage of their learning.

When you visit Hartford Manor, you will be impressed by the calm and purposeful working environment, which reflects an excellent mix of social and academic success. Great teaching across the school enables pupils to make superb academic progress. Excellent relationships in schools are a prerequisite for success in tests and assessments. Pupils at Hartford Manor make outstanding progress, and we consistently achieve above national averages in reading, writing and maths.

I look forward very much to working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any questions or to arrange a visit.
