Adverse Weather Conditions

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. We will use Facebook and the website  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.


Cheque Payments

With immediate effect, please make all cheques payable to 'The CAM Academy Trust' not Hartford Junior School.  Thank you.

The Veronica Claxton Memorial Fund

This fund was created in memory of Veronica Claxton who sadly passed away following a battle with cancer in 2008 and to date has reached nearly £222,000.00.  Luke, son of Veronica, is from Huntingdon and has always lived in Hartford.  Luke has arranged such a wide variety of challenges since 2009 and was shortlisted for the Pride of Britain Awards a couple of years ago.

Two of our pupils, Joseph and Jaxon, have participated previously in running events for Great Ormond Street Hospital charity and Team Bex, another local fundraising group set up in memory of a friend Rebecca who also was local to the Huntingdon area and sadly lost her battle with cancer a couple of years ago.  Actually, Joseph ran in the Brighton Mini Mile event on Saturday 13th April for Team Bex but this was their first, ever biking challenge…..and what a challenge it was!!

Joseph’s dad, Ade, is joining Luke and 15 others from Huntingdon on a 5 day ride to Berlin in July for a whopping 700 miles!! So they boys have very much got the running/biking bug from so many inspirational fundraising friends and family in our community.

 Together with 35 adults, Joseph and Jaxon biked 50 MILES altogether from Hartford to Addrenbrookes hospital and back to deliver 350 Easter eggs to children currently on the wards fighting cancer.  We met some amazing young children who were currently on the ward who were overjoyed with the delivery and one young boy even had a sit on one of the racing bikes.  Our friend, Luke Claxon, often arranges charity cycles, walks and events in support of Clic Sargent in the name of his mother. Joseph and Jaxon were the youngest cyclists by far and did an incredible job of completing this challenge with smiles on their faces and determination in their hearts.

3 Pillars Feeding the Homeless Charity

A message from Mrs Young, Parent & Volunteer:

I would just like to express my thanks to you regarding water for the homeless.  It included 163 bottles of water, as well as cans of drink, bottles of Pepsi, 11 tubes of suncream, lip balm, 20 pack of wipes and lots of crisps and almost 60 hot jacket potatoes. Please tell your pupils that they helped to build this pile of goodies and that the homeless people will be very grateful indeed. Some of it has gone out already and the rest will be distributed over the next few weeks. I currently go every other Tuesday and will take any donations made, thank you for your support.

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.'
