We take great pride in knowing that each and every one of our facilitators is an exceptional educator and talented individual. However, once per term we like to select a single facilitator as ‘Educator Of The Term’ to focus on and tell you a little bit more about…generally if they’ve gone above and beyond for us and the schools in which they work!

Therefore, this term, please congratulate… BENE SEBUYANGE (North)  FRANCESCA MCCROHON  (South), ELLIE- MAE WILLIAMS (Wales) & TAJ MATTHEWS (London) for being crowned our ‘Educators of the term’; well done everyone! Want to see why they are our Awesome Autumn Bigfooters? Read on…

Bigfoot North – Bene Sebuyange

Throughout this term Bene has made a remarkable impact in schools across the North West, leading Black History Month programmes and Anti-Bullying sessions with passion and positivity. Her commitment to growth and exceptional delivery skills have not only gained praise from students but also earned high regard from teaching staff. One school commended her for having an “infectious enthusiasm and wonderful rapport with the children and staff.” Congratulations, Bene on this well-deserved recognition, and thank you for your outstanding work this term!

Bigfoot South – Francesca McCrohon

Francesca has been doing an amazing job this term behind the scenes, supporting us with our ever growing list of admin tasks! Francesca has settled into her new role well and got to grips with sending out communications to schools and supporting staff with bookings. Thanks so much Francesca and well done!

Bigfoot Wales – Ellie-Mae Williams

Ellie-Mae has only recently started her journey with Bigfoot Wales and has fitted in just perfectly. She is a multi-talented artist who can lend her hand to absolutely anything. Ellie-Mae has been delivering our creative PPA cover to two primary schools in Merthyr and has risen to the challenge. Ellie-Mae has an everlasting vibrant energy, and the children absolutely adore her. Ellie-Mae is extremely passionate about drama and performing and we are so thrilled that she is part of the Bigfoot Wales team.

Bigfoot London – Taj Matthews  

This is Taj’s first term with Bigfoot, joining us in September to deliver ‘All Aboard the Empire Windrush’ and ‘Black and British’ programmes for Black History Month. He then went on to facilitate our new Big Experience, What Would You Do? for Anti Bullying Week in November. And what a wonderful impression he has made! Taj has been a joy to work with; his commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to giving children the best possible creative learning experiences has been so inspiring. Schools have consistently given Taj 100% outstanding feedback, often commenting on his professionalism and excellent inclusive facilitation.

‘Working with Taj yesterday at Greenvale School was such a delight. He was fantastic with the students and really engaged them with his animated speech and character. Taj really took the time to allow my students with additional needs to express their thoughts and feelings and celebrated each of their inputs whether small or big. Additionally he was so friendly and professional and would definitely have him back. ‘

We are so excited to work with Taj again next term. Thank you Taj, and well done for a brilliant Autumn term!
