A statement from Jane Bailey, Principal of South Shore Academy
We are devastated at this sad news. Jane was a well-loved member of staff and our thoughts are with her friends and family at this terrible time.
Jane was a truly wonderful friend and colleague to all of us at South Shore Academy. As our receptionist, she was in many ways, the public face of the school and she represented us amazingly in this role. We have received numerous messages of condolences from parents, students, community members and colleagues across Blackpool for which we are very grateful. All of them say the same things about our lovely Jane…. bubbly, kind, welcoming, funny, generous….. the list goes on. Our thoughts are also with her family at this dreadful time and in particular her three daughters. In our school family and theirs …… she is irreplaceable, much loved and will never be forgotten.
