My name is Clare Carr and I have been the Headteacher at Woodland Primary School since September 2014.
Following my English degree, I trained for teaching at High Force Education in Barnard Castle.
Since I qualified I have taught throughout the primary age range and in a variety of schools both large and small. I have always enjoyed my work, but even from early placements when I was training, I knew that my heart was really in teaching in village schools. I love the sense of community and the individual and personal approach which village schools have.
I live just outside Barnard Castle with my husband and our three daughters. Apart from providing a taxi service for the girls, I enjoy walking and reading in my spare time and I am also a Friend of Teesdale School in Barnard Castle.
