Queen’s Funeral: School closed on Monday 19th September 2022
Queen’s Funeral: Monday 19th September 2022
Our thoughts are with the Royal Family and all the members of our community on hearing the sad news that the Queen died last week. We have now entered a period of national mourning, a time for reflection and thought around the life of the Queen and the significant impact she has had on our nation and beyond. We will look at how, as a school, we can mark the occasion and ensure that students in our community understand the historical significance of the death of the Queen. Last week form tutors held reflections with students during form time.
I understand that the loss of the Queen may impact your family in many ways, possibly bringing to the forefront personal losses you may have suffered. The following support pages from the NHS and Child Bereavement UK offers advice in regard to grief after bereavement or loss as well as suggestions of how you may choose to approach discussions within your families on this issue.
I have been informed by the Department for Education that school will be closed next Monday 19th September on this day as a mark of respect.
