8th September 2022

Good evening,


By now you will no doubt have heard the sad news this evening of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


We have been informed this evening by the DfE of the following.


  • We have now entered a time of national mourning which continues until the end of the State Funeral.


  • Schools are to remain open and normal attendance is expected.


Tomorrow morning, we will hold a whole-school assembly via Teams during morning registration. The rest of the day will remain as usual.


This is a very sad time for our country and may well be a little disorientating for our children. Sticking to our routines as much as possible will provide a sense of security and safety. We will mark Her Majesty's passing in a number of appropriate ways over the coming weeks.


Queen Elizabeth has been a steady presence in the lives of all of us and her reign has been a shining example of faithful servant leadership. We thank God for her deep faith, and her unwavering service.


God Bless

James Rouse
