Pupils and teachers have bid a fond farewell to a classroom stalwart who began her life at the school as a dinner lady.
Jean Goacher stepped down from her role as a learning mentor at Grove Lea Primary after 25 years.
But life at the Hemsworth school started with serving up food for the pupils before she becoming a mentor - primarily supporting children and their families during difficult times.
Headteacher Sally Henshall said: “I will miss her greatly - it’s like having another mum. She is a kind lady with a massive heart.”
