Welcome to Carr Junior School!
Carr Junior School: Aim High, Shine Bright
There are many special things about our school; however, without a doubt, the people are the stars of our school.
Our wonderful children (our Carr Stars!) 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.
Our Big Ideas capture the enthusiasm of all children throughout school and enable each year group to go on their own Learning Adventures. We use a range of technology 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.
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 be a part of the Carr Junior community.
