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.

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.
