Archbishop of York’s Church of England Junior School has a School Council which meets regularly with Miss Roberts. The aim is to give the class representatives a voice in the development and running of the school. Children know they are listened to and can make suggestions that will be taken seriously.

2019 - 2020 Elected House Captains (School Council)
Blanch: Oliver (Captain)
Habgood: Oscar (Captain)
Hope: George (Captain)
Sentamu: Leila (Captain)
Our House System is intended to extend friendships and team spirit between children of all age groups and encourages positive and inclusive behaviour. The children are allocated to a ‘House’ on entry to the school. Each house is named after an Archbishop of York, namely – Blanch, Habgood, Hope and Sentamu.
House Points are awarded to pupils who show respect, observe school rules and routines, act responsibly or make a particular effort with their work. Any member of staff may award house points and parents/carers can also nominate their child. For example, if your child is helping the community/being responsible or kind outside school, a note to his/her teacher will result in a house point and extend the valuable link between home and school.
Throughout the year a number of activities e.g. House days and Superteams take place in which children of all ages support each other and work towards completing a variety of tasks.
