Welcome to Carr Junior School!
Carr Junior School: a wonderful, vibrant school in the West of York.
There are many special things about our school; however, without a doubt, the people are the stars of our school.
Our wonderful children (#carrstars) bring an energy and enthusiasm to school each day, which shines through in their learning. We have a creative and talented staff and governor team who are passionate about providing an exciting and rich curriculum whilst maintaining high academic standards. In 2018, our KS2 results were well above national averages. We are so proud of what our children can achieve and our Maths results are simply stunning, placing us in the top 5% of schools nationally.
We have been developing our curriculum over a number of years and are very excited by the learning opportunities it provides; studying space to Ancient Egypt; researching Dragons; as well as National or Global Issues which affect us all. We use a range of new technologies to help us learn and each one of us has a personal account to enable IT collaboration and sharing of work between home and school.
We are well known in York for our innovative use of technology. However, that is not a replacement for good strong relationships at every level in school. We are a restorative school and pride ourselves on developing a safe school and community in which everyone genuinely cares for each other. We work with partners in class achieving more together and each year group looks forward to their annual residential where we get to try exciting activities and challenge ourselves. From sleeping with the sharks, to caving and crab fishing, we embrace all the opportunities to learn and live together!
If you’ve not visited us yet, please come and meet the fantastic children, amazing staff (and perhaps a chicken or two!), who are all proud to call Carr Junior, ‘Our School’.
