Head Teacher’s Welcome


Welcome to Woodham Burn Primary and Nursery School's website.  We hope that you find the information useful and it gives you a flavour of what life is like at our school.  Woodham Burn is a wonderful primary and nursery school looking after and educating about 240 pupils from the local area.  The school was established in 2006 when Woodham Burn Infant School and Woodham Burn Junior School amalgamated.
I, Mr Kieran Pavey, am currently the Associate Head Teacher for Woodham Burn alongside being the Head Teacher of Vane Road Primary School, also in Newton Aycliffe. This role is a temporary position as I am supporting the school in the absence of the substantive Head Teacher, Mrs Edwards.  It is an absolute honour to be the Associate Head Teacher of this school, because the school is filled with wonderful children and amazing teachers.  We have fabulous support from our parents/carers and I believe firmly that schools need to work hand in hand with parents/carers of children to make sure that the school provides the very best for our children.
We teach the children that they are the most important part of the school and the teachers are here for them.  We believe that the one thing that makes us all the same is that we are different and so we celebrate the array of difference that we have in our school community and the wider world.
As a parent of two girls myself, I know how challenging parenthood is and how much we adore our children.  In leading Woodham Burn, I always strive to provide the children here with what I would want for my own children.  The best is only good enough for them so that is what we will strive for at this school.
Hopefully you will find everything you need in the pages of this website, but if there is anything else you would like to know or would like to arrange a school visit, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
