Dinner ladies on the back row for certain, as my mum Ethel Lyons is 3rd from left she was a dinner lady from 1965 until she passed away suddenly in 1986

Thats my Mum on the bottom row, third from the left, Joan Howes. She was the Head Mistress. We moved to the US in 1980 and Mum passed away a few years ago.

That's my mum too! Joan Howes, 3rd from left front row. Miss Marshall, on Mum's left, came to the US to visit us once.

i think the lady on the end is Mrs Holland. Mrs Marshall was scary - no-one wanted to be in her class at the end of infants. Mrs Colbourne was very stylish and Mr Roper an Miss Roscoe were just fantastic. I had Mrs sillitoe in first year of juniors but Mr Roper made up for it
