Monday 19th September 2022 - Following the announcement from Buckingham

Palace of the death of our sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a period of

National Mourning has started and will continue until the end of the State Funeral.

This is a period of time for reflection in response to the death of the Sovereign. To

mark this, we have held a whole school assembly to explain what has happened to

the children as well as celebrate the life and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II.

We will remain sensitive to the issues over this period and continue to nurture our

children throughout this time. The official date of the State Funeral is 19 September

2022. This day will be a bank holiday and school will be closed on this day as a mark

of respect. We will re-open as normal on Tuesday 20 September.
