Passing of Queen Elizabeth 11
It is with deep sadness that we write with a heavy heart 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 all 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 and provide an opportunity to talk about grief and grieving.
When further details are known, we will be observing a national minutes silence. There is also a bank holiday on the day of the funeral (date to be confirmed) and the school will be closed on that day (if this falls on a weekday).
We now have a new King Charles III, so will finish by saying God Save The King.
