Hartford Junior School News

Please watch this space for news and event information.

Hello everybody. We're going to recognise World Down's Syndrome Day tomorrow by inviting the children to come in wearing mismatched socks. This is not a fundraising event, so the children don't need to bring any money. We will talk about Down's Syndrome in assembly as it affects some pupils at our school, and this is a great opportunity to raise awareness. You can find more information about World Down's Syndrome Day (including why it's on the 21st March) at https://worlddownsyndromeday.org/lots-of-socks #lotsofsocks

Year 6 SATs information

Year 6 held a meeting on Wednesday 14th March at 6pm to talk parents/carers through the SATs process, what to expect and how to help your child at home.

We've attached the PowerPoint presentation that we talked through. Additionally, at 09:00 on Tuesday 17th April, we will be holding a SATs information session where we will talk through the PowerPoint with Year 6 children. You are more than welcome to join us in class if you would find it helpful. Please let us know.

If you have specific questions relating to your child, the Year 6 team will be available Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th March to discuss individual's needs.

 Please email office@hartford-jun.cambs.sch.uk or catch us by the door to let us know if you wish to make an appointment.

Many thanks

Mrs Woodcock, Mrs McDonnell and Mrs Ruddock

Year 6 Rotary Club Quiz

On Thursday 22nd February 2018 15 of our fabulous Year 6 pupils competed in the Huntingdon Rotary Club Quiz last night, which involved five primary schools, and were victorious with a winning score of 108 correct answers out of 150 questions.  The children answered rounds of questions on geography and plants, animals and general knowledge. Our closest rivals, Buxton and Brampton came joint second with a score of 107. 
To reward for our success, the Rotary Club is awarding the school £50.00 prize and a trophy which is currently being engraved with Hartford Junior School name on it!  This will be presented to the winning team as soon as it is delivered to us.
The school would like to thank the children who participated, and the parents to made up the 'cheerleading squad' - your support is always appreciated.
Once again, congratulations to the Year 6 Quiz champions. 


Adverse Weather Conditions

With the start of winter upon us we would like to let you know how we will respond if we have to close the school due to snow or any other unforeseen circumstance.

A message will also be put on the school website, and Facebook page, county website and the local radio stations will be advised. Many of you are signed up to Parentmail and we will also use this as a means of contacting you along with notifications via Parent hub.

Schools will only close in exceptional circumstances, and each school will make the decision individually, before the start of day.


Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Some quotes from our open day

Hartford Junior School Open Day

 We opened our doors to the community on 7th July and invited people in to look at the school whilst it was in full flow.  We are grateful to the members of the community who came and shared this experience, and for their feedback:


'It was lovely to see all the children and staff looking happy and working hard, even at 2.45pm on a Friday afternoon!'

'I liked the school and environment within. Thanks, Kaitlin, for showing me the school.  You did a great job!'

'The children who showed me around were very helpful and did a great job!'

'Thank you for the opportunity to see the school in action.  Everyone was hard at work even in the heat which was great to see!  It was also lovely to see how excellence is valued here with recognition of good work all around the walls.'

'Thank you for a very interesting tour of the school.  It was really interesting to see all the children learning in the classrooms.  Lovely to see all the art on the walls.'
