Who we are

Mrs Alice Vickers

I am Mrs Alice Vickers and I am part of the Waycroft Local Academy Council. I taught at Waycroft for nearly twenty happy years, and feel privileged to be able to continue my involvement with the school that has given me so much and still holds such a special place in my heart.

Ms Albany Boulter

I am currently working as a teaching assistant at Wicklea Academy. I love working with children and also have a keen interest in research and development in teaching and learning.

Previously, I have worked in a nursery and as a nanny. Both of these roles required me to adopt a “whole child approach”. I feel this has influenced my style of teaching, particularly with children with SEN.

I also have a daughter in a Waycroft Multi Academy Trust school. First being a parent and then a member of staff will hopefully bring a useful perspective to the board.

Mrs Pat Slee

I live in Stockwood and taught at Waycroft Academy for many years. I taught Reception or KS1 classes until I was invited to train to be a Numbers Count teacher. I supported children in Y2 in this capacity and using this training, supported children throughout the school according to their mathematical needs.

I look forward to being able to bring my experience of EYFS, KS1 and maths teaching to support Waycroft MAT Academies. I am the link councillor for Children in Care and for SEND.
I have now retired from teaching. My time is taken up caring for my grandchildren and also a variety of craft activities. I enjoy singing in a choir and learning to Line Dance. I am an active member of a church.

Ms Katie Genge

I am a mum of 3 young boys who either currently attend Waycroft Academy or will in the near future. I am passionate about my community and play an active role as a committee member of the local 'Friends of Cottle Road Park' group and the 'Friends of Waycroft Academy'.

My previous work as a road safety officer and a road safety engineer, saw me working with a multi agency approach (including local LA’s, police, fire, schools and other Government agency’s such as DFT). I am confident using qualitative and quantitative data and have applied that to an education, training, publicity, enforcement and engineering remit within road safety - all of which I feel is very transferrable to the role of parent governor/local academy councillor.
