Death of Queen Elizabeth II
It is with deep sadness that we write on behalf of the school staff and Governing body to express our sincere condolences on the death of her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Majesty was an outstanding public servant who gave her life to the service of the country and also the commonwealth. She will be remembered as a most cherished and loved sovereign.
As a school, we came together to celebrate her 70 years of service, a historic milestone. It was a wonderful occasion and one which we will fondly remember.
We are aware that this sad occurrence may be hard for some of our children to understand, and the staff will be working to support children as they become aware through television and events which will be played out in London over the next 10 days. Opportunities to talk about grief and grieving at a level the children can understand, should the children ask questions; will be supported carefully by staff.
There will be a Bank holiday on the day of the funeral (date to be confirmed) and the school will be closed on that day.
We now have a new King Charles III, so we will finish by saying God Save the King.
