From Emma


 I remember Mrs Yorke fondly, not only for her amazing baking skills, but getting the daily joy of sitting on the reception desk and listening to her read, write inc class that she did on the mezzanine level above me! She was magical! She made the kids learning fun and exciting with her little props! Loved listening to her read to the children, with so much enthusiasm and always remember her baking them little gingerbread people to go alongside the Gingerbread Man story! An amazingly kind and loving lady and it is so sad to think that She is no longer with us; but what a legacy to leave behind, having played such an important part in so many children’s lives.

My thoughts go out to her family and I send them love and condolences.

Sleep tight Mrs Yorke xxxx

From Jane and David


To the one who taught Logan to love learning
To the one who always made him smile even on the days he wanted his world to end
To the one who faced so many battles with him in school but never gave up.
You were our shinning amour, our glimpse of hope. You pushed Logan to succeed and you never gave up!
You got him to speak in a class assembly for the first ever time. You were his voice and his ears when the world felt so strange to him
You made such a change in my sons life and I will forever be grateful.

I sat with Logan tonight and told him you passed away. He asked why and I said you were poorly with cancer.
These were Logans words

“But mum that’s sad, why couldn’t she get medication? Because that makes you better right?”

I explained that not every illness can be treated

“The world needs to find medication then mum. We should tell them to find a way to fix this. She was always super nice to me and she helped me when the bullies hurt me”

Autistic people may not show emotions but I know he will adore and remember you!

R.I.P Mrs Yorke ❀️

What an inspiration this lady was..worked at school with her for 11 years and dont think I ever saw her without a smile... She just sparkled. She will leave a gap that can't be filled, my heart goes out to her family, all the staff at school ( because I know first hand how much she was loved), and to all the children at the school past and present.
I will miss bumping into you on the square and having a catch up.
Fly with the angels Debbie... sprinkle your glitter and happiness everywhere Xxx ❀️
