Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II

Dear Parents and Carers, 

We express our deepest sympathies for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

We have now entered a period of national mourning that will continue until the end of the State Funeral. The Department for Education wrote to schools last night to confirm that school settings should remain open. 

Once details of the funeral are confirmed by the Royal Household and we have received further direction from the Department for Education, we will update you on any changes that may occur to upcoming school events/activities. Unless otherwise stated, please assume that any scheduled school activities and events will continue as planned. If we are advised of any national holidays, we will keep you informed. 

Today, the children have had an opportunity to talk about the Queen during carpet time with their teachers and we will be holding an assembly on Monday to reflect on the things we remember most about her. We will ensure that information we share with the children about the Queen’s passing is at an appropriate level for their age group.  

If you think your child may be upset due to the passing of the Queen, or this has triggered any emotions relating to loss, please let us know so that we can provide support if needed. 

Best wishes,

Mrs S Yay-Walker, Headteacher
