Jayne Clancy was Headteacher of Hartwell Primary School for 13 years. I spoke to her at the end of the summer term 2017 in her final weeks before retiring. I wanted to interview Jayne because living locally I know what a fabulously musical school Hartwell is. I didn’t realise at the time Jayne was retiring, so this is a really fitting look back at how music in the school has played such a big part in creating a rich environment for the pupils.
I wanted to share how it is possible for you to put music at the heart of your school to aid the whole curriculum, not diminish it.
We discuss how the support of the staff and vision of the governors is so important in sustaining music which sounds like a fantastic platform from which the new Head Mrs Jamie Pardon can take the mantle.
Hartwell Primary is also one of the cluster schools that will be involved with my new music project with Andy Williams from EWS. You can listen to my interview with Andy about this here on episode 41.
