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


 I wanted to take the chance to update you on what we have been doing as governors since September

to ensure that your children attend the best school possible.

Following our Ofsted inspection result in March, we have been working with Leeds City Council to

monitor how well Mr Lumb and the teachers have been addressing the issues from that report. As

governors we have been receiving reports from the council every half-term and we are pleased by the

progress that has been made.

We have heard so far this year that the teaching of Reading is now consistently good and that there is

a systematic approach across the whole school. We have also heard how behaviour in lessons form

96% of all children is either good or better and the school has effective procedures to deal with the

small number of children who find it hard to behave.

On Wednesday 7th November, Leeds City Council will be inspecting Teaching and Learning in school

and I will let you know about the outcomes of that review in our next newsletter.


Thank you and kind regards

Claire Burgess
