Caroline Catmull

Caroline is a mum of three, two daughters who attend the school and a son that spent his primary years here. She has a huge passion for the school, and a history with it that spans 35 years. 

Her background includes working in Human Resources, Recruitment, Customer Services, and working within charitable organisations.

Caroline is passionate about educating, enabling, and empowering all pupils in the school so each, and every child can achieve their full potential. She recognises this can only be achieved in a high quality, continuously improving and safe environment. 

She will listen and be proactive in working with the school and parents to ensure a positive learning experience.

Eddy Adam

Councillor Eddy Adam has been a Newton Aycliffe resident for 39 years and became a Durham County councillor in 2013. He is a mechanical engineer to trade and has 22 years’ experience as a college lecturer in Darlington. Eddy is the current chairman of the Environment and Sustainable communities Overview & Scrutiny committee and serves on a range of other committees at Durham County Council. He has recently become a Local Authority governor and said that he is keen to see our school develop into an exciting and great place to learn where its pupils are proud to part of the learning experience.

Emma Barber (Parent/ community governor)

 

Emma is a qualified children’s nurse with 15 years’ experience and currently runs her own local branch of Co-op Funeralcare.  Her twin boys are in Year 2 and she has another child who has just started Woodham Academy after also attending Woodham Burn from Year 3 through to Year 6. She has a daughter in her second year at University and 2 step daughters, so she has been involved in education as a parent for many years.

 

She is motivated, dedicated, objective and respectful of this privileged role. She became a School Governor to contribute to the school through supporting and challenging decisions from a parental viewpoint, so that all of our children receive the education they deserve.

Statutory Guidance for Governing Bodies
