Friday hero

4th February 2000 at 00:00
Sandra Bagshaw has worked for Poolsbrook primary school in Staveley, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire, for 24 years.

Sandra works tirelessly for the school as its caretaker, senior midday supervisor and as a governor. Headteacher Lesley Paddick describes her as a well-loved character who works incredibly hard, often voluntarily. Straight-talking and unfailingly cheerful, she is considered to be "worh her weight in gold". The school came out of special measures last November and now has a permanent team of teachers - all fans of Sandra.
