Carr Junior School

Our Governors

Local Governor Board


Message from the Chair and Vice Chair of Governors


The Governors at Carr Junior are a group of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, all of whom are committed to ensuring that the pupils in this school have the best education and opportunities to become great members of our community.  


Our governors include parents, teachers, members of the community and specialists appointed by the Local Authority.  As a group we are responsible for the major decisions about the school and its future, and work closely with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that Carr Junior School is an effective and successful school for the children.


Our role includes:

  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent;

  • Ensuring decisions take into account the views and experiences of stakeholders – pupils, parents, staff and our community


Contacting Governors:

A full list of Governing Body members is included. We welcome feedback from anyone involved in the life of our school. If you would like to know more about the school’s plans, the role of the governors within our school or are interested in becoming a governor yourself please get in touch; we would love to talk to you.


Should you wish to contact a member of the Governors please speak to the school office on 01904 798996.

Thank you
