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

Welcome to the part of the newsletter where the Governors of the school let you know about the work we do to support and challenge the leaders of the school.

It is a strange feeling writing this as it will be my last ever message as the Chair of Governors. I have recently been promoted in my day job and that means that i do not have the time needed to do this job to the standard your children deserve.

Over the 12 months, I have had the pleasure to be in the role we have recurited four fantastic Assistant Headteachers, who I believe will make the school stronger. We have also increased the Governing Body to 14 people and recruited three fantastic Governors, who have children attending the school.

The children have enjoyed many different experiences this year and did very well in the Year 1 Phonics check and the Year 2 assessments. We are working with the school's leaders to ensure that children in Year 6 do as well as possible this coming year.

Claire Burgess is your new Chair of Governors. She was elected at the Full Governing Body Meeting on September 28th and I wish her well as they work with Mr Lumb and all the teachers to move the school forward.


All the best for the future.

Mr Keving Birkin
