Queen Elizabeth II

Following the sad news that her majesty the Queen has passed away, we have had a simple assembly to explain this to the Year 1 and 2 children. In Reception classes, the staff are going to explain what has happened in age appropriate terms if and when the children raise the issue in class.
We are also planning many activities, to both celebrate the life of Elizabeth II and to explain that we have a new King, Charles III, over the coming weeks.
I am sure that you have heard that the whole country will have a day of mourning on Monday 19th September 2022 for her majesty's funeral.
Obviously, school will be closed on that day to everyone.
We will be in touch about the possibility of re-arranging the 2 trips that were planned on that day for year 1 and 2. We hope they can be re-arranged in the near future but will confirm as soon as we can.
Take care at this very sad time for everyone.
