A young teacher who had a ‘loving heart’ died suddenly leaving her students heartbroken. Tributes have been paid to Rachel Morgan who passed away unexpectedly at the age of just 26.

Headteacher Wendy Figes paid tribute to her ‘thoughtful and kind’ colleague. She said: ‘Rachel Morgan had worked as a teacher at Kells Infants School since January 2022. ‘Prior to this appointment she had worked in other local schools and touched a large number of young lives.
‘Whilst at Kells Infants school she oversaw the development and improvement of writing across the curriculum and also led Computing through school.
‘She had a particular interest in mental health and wellbeing and ran after-school clubs supporting this, including, mindfulness and yoga. ‘Rachel had a passion for health and fitness and was a keen member of her local gym but also joined colleagues on local jogs after school on a weekly basis.
‘This helped her meet her personal goal of achieving 10,000 steps as a minimum every day, a feat she maintained for 600 consecutive days. ‘Rachel was passionate about children and enjoyed being with them. She had a calm, quiet manner and made everyone feel at ease in her presence. (SOURCE)
