Welcome to Hunslet Carr Primary School




At Hunslet Carr Primary School we are very fortunate to have a dedicated team of governors who are skilled in their role as key strategic decision makers and vision setters. We believe that effective school governance is at the centre of a good school and we do all we can to promote and develop our governors through our work across the school.




Our governing body consists of fourteen governors, and they serve a term of office for four years although this can be shorter if they wish. The main aim of our governors is to ensure that school provides an outstanding education to its children and to improve standards.




Children are at the heart of everything we do at Hunslet Carr Primary School and we work hard to make sure that all our children believe that they can be anything they want to be. We hope that they are excited and curious about the world around them and develop the life skills they will need to be happy, successful, confident and resilient young people.




Our school has a community feel, and it is our vision that all young people at Hunslet Carr Primary School will have High Expectations, be Caring, have Positive Attitudes and be Successful.  Our children benefit greatly from the strong partnerships and sense of common purpose which the school has developed with our governors, parents, local schools and the community.




You may already be familiar with who we are and what we do, but if you would like more information, please click on the links below to find out more or contact us through the school office on 0113 2713804.

Governors' News




Hello!  Firstly I’d like to introduce myself – my name is Claire Burgess, and I was elected as Chair of Governors at the governing board meeting which took place in September 2017.   I’ve been on the governing board for over two years and have enjoyed my time so far – our school ethos of High Expectations, Caring, Positive Attitudes and Successful is very clear to see from the children and staff whenever I visit the school and I’m looking forward to being in school more often over the coming months.




One of the reasons governors will be in school more is our exciting new Governor’s Certificate for going the extra mile.  Certificates will be presented to children who are nominated for this award, with the final decision on the top three being made by members of the School Council each term.  Staff members will also have the opportunity to be nominated for the award – the first certificates will be presented in the assembly on Friday 10th November.  Governors will also continue to be in school monitoring the school’s priorities this year so that we can challenge and support Mr Lumb and the Senior Leadership Team to improve the school even further.




I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin Birkin as outgoing Chair, and I’m pleased to report that he will be remaining on the governing board as Vice Chair.  Another of our long-serving governors – James Annetts will be leaving the governing board, and again I’d like to offer our thanks to James for all the time and commitment he has given to the school over the years.








Thank you and kind regards                     Claire Burgess                                    Chair of Governors
