Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos has been described as a "beautiful little girl" by the headteacher of her school.
"The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking.
"Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly. Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair."
Chris Upton said staff are focusing on helping pupils and staff cope with the news and that specialist support from Lancashire County Council have been called in to help.
- Chris Upton, Headteacher at Tarleton Community Primary School in Preston:
The principal of South Shore Academy in Blackpool has paid tribute to Jane Tweddle-Taylor, another victim of the attack at Manchester Arena.
We are devastated at this sad news. Jane was a well-loved member of staff and our thoughts are with her friends and family at this terrible time. Jane was a truly wonderful friend and colleague to all of us at South Shore Academy. As our receptionist, she was in many ways, the public face of the school and she represented us amazingly in this role. We have received numerous messages of condolences from parents, students, community members and colleagues across Blackpool for which we are very grateful. All of them say the same things about our lovely Jane.... bubbly, kind, welcoming, funny, generous..... the list goes on. Our thoughts are also with her family at this dreadful time and in particular her three daughters. In our school family and theirs ...... she is irreplaceable, much loved and will never be forgotten.
