Carr Junior School are looking for School Governors

We are looking for committed and enthusiastic people to join the governing body at Carr Junior School, part of the South Bank MAT, in Acomb. We are a vibrant school, with a creative and talented staff and governor team who are passionate about providing an exciting and rich curriculum whilst maintaining high academic standards.

As a governor you would join a network of volunteers who set the school’s strategic priorities, monitor performance, and support the school’s development. The majority are not education professionals, but are drawn from among parents and members of the local community. Every person brings different skills and life experiences, and we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds. Experience of working in education or governance would be useful but is not necessary: full training and induction is provided to all new governors.

Being a governor is a great opportunity to contribute to the school’s success. You will develop new skills, meet new people and connect with an extensive network of governors across the city while improving education for children and young people in our area.

If you’d like to find out more please contact Sophie Triffitt on or 01904 554210. Or if you wish to speak to the school’s Headteacher or Chair of Governors, they can be contacted via the school; or 01904 798996.
