Mr Wainford – Year 4 teacher, Lower KS2 Phase leader and writing coordinator
I started teaching training in 2002 at Clacton County High School working with Year 10 and 11 pupils. Prior to working at Holland Park Primary I have worked with Years 5 through to 13 at schools in Colchester and Brightlingsea in subjects as diverse as Geography, Child Development and Mathematics. Before I started teaching I worked in Marketing, Finance and Local Government in the City of London, Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea.
I have always been keen to keep learning and have recently qualified as a SENCO, completed a Masters in Education course as well as a qualification in holiday French!
I have three children myself, aged 9, 7 and 5, who keep me active and on my toes and I am a keen gardener. I enjoy teaching all subjects but in particular PE, Geography and Numeracy and I am excited about the opportunity to develop every child in 4W to reach their potential.
