Welcome to Westbrook Lane Primary.
Westbrook Lane is a Primary School for boys and girls aged 4-11
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Janet Rhodes lost her brave fight with cancer and passed away on 18th July. Janet worked as a learning support assistant throughout school for 16 years but was most recently based in year 2. She has worked with many children (and staff) who have benefitted from her support and guidance both on an academic level and a social one.
Janet was a very popular member of staff with a kind, generous and caring personality. She had a positive outlook on life and a great sense of humour which staff and children enjoyed on a daily basis. Janet had a wonderful relationship with the children in her care and will be greatly missed by all who knew her and worked with her. Our thoughts and condolences go to her family at this difficult time.
Details of the funeral arrangements will be published on the school website once they are finalised.
We will be doing some fund raising in school in her memory and will give you more details in the autumn term.
Amanda TurnerFuneral Arrangements. The funeral will be held at South Parade Baptist Church, Headingley on Monday 27th July at 2.15pm. Janet requested a dress code - no black but colourful and pretty. After the service there will be a collection for Pink Events which is a breast cancer charity that Janet was a keen supporter of.
