A SCHOOL is in mourning following the death of a member of staff “at the heart of its community”.

Koreen Davis, 42, office manager at Harwell Community Primary School near Didcot, is believed to have died at home on Tuesday.

Headteacher Bryn Gibson said: “Koreen was at the heart of the school community and I know she will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

“For eight years as office manager at the school she was a constant and reassuring presence with a ready smile for all.

“At this time, it is impossible to express the loss we all feel.

“All our condolences and thoughts go out to her family and loved ones.”

The school said it would be providing support and counselling for pupils and staff affected by the sad news.
