PARENTS have been reduced to tears by a video of school children performing a touching song for a member of staff injured in the bombing at Manchester.

Sharon Crawford is being treated in hospital for the injuries she suffered in the explosion at the Manchester Arena following the Ariana Grande concert.

The terror attack claimed the lives of 22 people, and injured almost 120.

Mrs Crawford is a teaching assistant at Barnton Community Nursery and Primary School, and the children were filmed singing Count on Me by Bruno Mars to show Mrs Crawford how much she means to them and the whole school community.

The entire school took part in recording the song, which features the lyric – ‘You can count on me like one two three, I'll be there’.

The three-minute film is entitled ‘We Stand Together’, and is accompanied by the words – ‘sending our love and very best wishes to Mrs Crawford. You can count on us.’

The video also features members of staff, and has generated an ‘overwhelming’ response, being liked and shared hundreds of times on Facebook, and attracting 75 comments.

Barnton Community Primary School headteacher Annette Williams said: “We were shocked and saddened to hear of the events on Monday night, and our thoughts and best wishes go to families of those who have lost loved ones, or been affected in any way.

“Following news of such an injury to a member of our staff - Mrs Crawford - we have been overwhelmed by the response from those in the community and beyond.

“We made a film to show our support, and as a resilient community we continue to stand united. We are so proud to be at the heart of this fabulous, supportive community.”

Mrs Williams said Mrs Crawford had gone to the Manchester Arena to collect a relative from the concert.

The school responded to one Facebook comment by saying it created the film because ‘we wanted to let her [Mrs Crawford] know how much she means to us’.

The following are some of the comments.
