We 'CARE' Courage, Aspire, Respect, Explore

Governing Body

In Memory of Amanda Tanner

 

 

It is with deep sadness that I write to inform you about Amanda Tanner, a much loved and highly respected member of the MOSPS community, who passed away on Friday 10th April, after losing her hard fought battle with cancer. 

Amanda had been a Governor at the school since 2015, having been the Clerk to the Governing Body for a number of years before that.  Not only did she have invaluable procedural and operational knowledge which greatly assisted the Governing Body, she had an unrelenting passion for, and commitment to, the school.  This was always evident in her constant pursuit to ensure the very best educational provision for each and every child at the school, whilst also caring greatly about the staff team.

Amanda was a highly professional and very capable person, but was also warm and open, caring and kind.  She will be sorely missed by everybody who knew her.

Amanda was a champion of our We CARE values. She embodied the spirit of exploration through her many sailing adventures around the world, she always aspired to do her best for the school, was unwaveringly respectful of others' opinions and showed immeasurable courage, not least in the final challenge which she faced head on.

In view of this, and in lasting tribute to Amanda's contribution to the whole school community, the Governors and staff at MOSPS have considered it appropriate to create an "End of Year Award" in her memory.  The award is known as "The Amanda Tanner We CARE Award" and takes the form of a brass sailing boat (as a nod to her favourite pastime), engraved with those words.  The intention is that it will be awarded at the end of each academic year, to one pupil at MOSPS who has, in the opinion of the staff, best demonstrated our We CARE values, which Amanda held so dear.

Whilst times are hard for everyone right now and there is much sadness at Amanda's passing for those who knew her personally, I hope that the enduring gift that she gave the school can continue to be remembered and celebrated each year through the giving of the award.

Please continue to stay safe at home and thank you for all your continued support of the school and its staff at this very difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with Amanda’s husband Mark and her family.

Yours sincerely,

 

Kate Crawford and the MOSPS community.
