The responsible authority of Hartford Infant School is the board of trustees of The Cam Academy Trust. Responsibilities are delegated to the Local Governing Board in line with the Trust Scheme of Delegation.

There are three types of governor: Trust appointed, staff elected and parent elected. Additionally, the Trust and LGB can appoint individuals as 'Associate Members' who may have specialist skills or knowledge for a minimum term of one yea. They are not governors, and cannot vote, but they can attend governor meetings and can chair committees set up for a specific purpose. The Trust appoint the Chair and Vice Chair. The LGB must have a good balance of experience and the skills required to monitor and support a school's performance and to make evidence-based strategic decisions, while also supporting other schools within the Trust as required.

The total membership of the Governing Body shall be not fewer than nine members and not more than 16. These comprise

  • Two ex-officio members (CEO or Primary Executive Leader of The Trust and the Head/Principal)
  • Two elected members of staff
  • Two elected parents
  • Not fewer than five more more than 12 Trustee governors, appointed by the Trust
