Welcome to Henry Maynard Primary School and Nursery. We are a community school maintained by the London Borough of Waltham Forest.
Our website aims to give you a taster of our school, as well as providing information for both parents, pupils and our community. We publish and celebrate our learning on our school twitter account @hmprimary and regular notifications and reminders are sent to parents and carers through our school app. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for.
At our school we are all committed to promoting a learning and teaching environment that embeds the values of inclusive educational practices. We aim to ensure that education is accessible and relevant to all our learners, to respect each other and to celebrate diversity and difference.
We are committed to a policy of equal opportunities for all;
regardless of class, disability, ethnic origin, gender, sexuality, family make-up, belief (religious or non-religious), or any other individual special need.
We value the many different cultures of our school and local community and know that our school benefits from the diverse and wide cultural inheritance of our children.
Any incident of a discriminatory nature is treated very seriously and we have a formal procedure for dealing with such incidents.
We recognise the importance of parents and carers as partners in their children's education and are very proud of the relationship we have with parents and carers. We ask that parents or carers encourage and support their children's learning by reading with them regularly and talking to them about the world in which we live. We have an active parent-teacher association called the Friends of Henry Maynard School (FoHMS).
We are involved in initial teacher training and deliver the School Direct and PGCE programme as well as providing a NQT training programme for local schools.
We are actively involved in our local community and have strong teaching, research and partnership links with local primary and secondary schools as well as the sixth form colleges. We raise funds for local, national and international charities and have an established association with a neighbouring care home.
We believe that every child is entitled to equal access to an engaging curriculum, regardless of race, gender, class or disability.
Mrs Linda Adair
