Heather Housden

I have been involved in schools all my working life as a teacher, head teacher or Ofsted inspector. My concern is not only for the quality of children’s education , but also school as a good spiritual experience. That is why I am committed to church schools and in particular George Carey.

Parent Governor

Fatuma Nalule

Hello my name is Fatuma Nalule. I am a parent governor at the school. I am a mother of 3 children that attend George Carey School and I run a community organisation called Triangoals as a director.


My aim is to work closely with the school and to build good positive relationships with both parents and the community alike. I am committed to achieving excellence throughout our school and for the good of all the children.

Parent Governor

Stephen Noon

Having worked in education all my life, I am pleased to join the governing body of George Carey CE Primary School as an associate governor. Schools face challenging times as they become more autonomous and I am committed to supporting our thriving school as a focal point of the community and as a place of high expectations and ambition for all of our young children within its distinctively Christian setting. I bring a range of skills and understandings about school improvement and effective teaching.


Sam Pollard

Sam has been an Anglican Vicar since 2011 and in September 2018 was appointed alongside his wife, Anna, as Lead Ministers for Barking Riverside. He and Anna are committed to seeing this community and every person in it become all that they can be and are commissioned to plant a new Anglican worshipping community here.  George Carey is right at the heart of this and Sam is privileged to serve in seeing this continue to be a place where pupils, staff, and families thrive. 


Previously Sam spent 7 years serving St Mary’s Church, Loughton, as well as being Hub Director for Westminster Theological Centre (an innovative higher education institution) and is currently completing a PhD in Theology.  Sam and Anna have been married for 10 years and have two pre-school children – Leo and Cora.
