I am Mrs Ferguson, and have taught at Waycroft since 1989, where I started my career teaching in the nursery. I have been fortunate to work under the leadership of many inspiring head teachers, and have taught across key stage 1 throughout these years. I now find myself back in nursery, the place where I first started, and where I feel my passion lies. I enjoy providing children with an environment where they are able to confidently explore and develop an enthusiasm and love of learning.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, valuing precious times spent together.
I am Mr Jenkins. I have been teaching at Waycroft since 1984, some of the pupils I taught are now Waycroft parents themselves. I spent most of my years teaching in Reception. I love working with young children and enjoy seeing them learn and develop. Prior to teaching I studied music at Cardiff University and then went on to study trombone at the Royal Academy of Music, I have also been a peripatetic brass teacher, a conductor at a children’s Saturday morning music centre and a professional musician (I once performed on the pyramid stage at the Glastonbury Festival!) Outside school I enjoy 5-a-side football and playing my trombone in brass bands and orchestras. I have really enjoyed working with other staff to develop ‘Free Range Play’ at Waycroft.
I am Mrs May. I have been teaching since 2007. I spent 7 years teaching at West Town Lane Primary School and have been teaching at Waycroft since then. I have a real passion for teaching young children and see my role as a real privilege in introducing young children to the wonders of learning. I have taught in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 in my career.
I also have a love of dance and have taken children to the Colston Hall to perform in the ‘Stages’ dance event for many years. Whilst at school myself I was fortunate to perform in ‘Stages’ at many venues in Bristol and Bath, including the Bristol Hippodrome. I run a weekly Sing and Sign club at lunchtime each Wednesday.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my young family, and spending the holidays catching up with my parents and siblings who are also all teachers!
My name is Mrs Maxwell. I joined Waycroft in 2002 and have taught children across the school, from reception to Year 6. I particularly enjoy teaching history, having completed a history degree at the University of Bristol, although in my role as a Foundation stage teacher I like to support children as they pursue their personal curiosities and gain an excitement for learning.
I love to travel, both for pleasure and to further my educational experiences. My adventures have taken me to places such as Canada, Thailand and Hong Kong, and I have been lucky enough to visit schools and teach in Ghana, St Lucia and Delhi.
In my spare time I like to enjoy outdoor pursuits, I used to be a regular rock climber and have even jumped out of an aeroplane, but now I have two young children of my own my happiest times are spent with them.
Lead Practitioner 2 year-olds
My association with Waycroft began in 2000 when the first of my children started nursery. Before working here I had a variety of job roles, including Wildlife Consultant, Bank Clerk, Librarian and Registered Childminder. After gaining Early Years Professional Status I joined the incredible Early Years Team at Waycroft and am now the Lead Practitioner in our Admiral Nursery for 2 year-olds. Working in Early Years you never know quite what each day will bring and this is one of the many aspects of the job that I love, as well as seeing the children grow in confidence and independence.
