Learning, Working and Achieving Together

Governing Body

Henry Maynard’s Governing Body supports the school and the Head Teacher. We aim to ensure the school has clear objectives and values that are championed by the whole school community. All the work we do has pupil achievement and school improvement at its heart. We work with the Head Teacher and staff in raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning so that every pupil achieves to the best of his or her ability.

You can contact the Governing Body via the school office or on the school email
