Who we are

Mr Joseph Fox-Bowen

Chair of Waycroft LAC

I have lived in Stockwood all my life and I attended Waycroft Academy as a child. It is a great privilege to serve as Chair of the Local Academy Council and the link councillor for Health & Safety.

I pursued the role of LAC because I wish to play a part in ensuring children receive a fantastic education, preparing them for the future and in-turn strengthening our community. I also wish to give back to the Academy for the integral education received and the countless memories made during my time as a pupil.

I am also a Parish Councillor in Whitchurch Village and a student at university, wishing to dedicate my life and career to public service.

Ms Albany Boulter

Local Academy Councillor

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

Local Academy Councillor

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.
