National mourning period/Bank holiday
Schools will close on Monday 19th September.
Following the announcement from Buckingham Palace of the death of our sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a period of National Mourning has started and will continue until the end of the State Funeral. This is a period of time for reflection in response to the death of the Sovereign.
The official date of the State Funeral is Monday, 19th September 2022. This day will be a bank holiday and settings that are normally closed on a bank holiday will be closed on this day as a mark of respect. This will include schools and colleges.
We will expect normal attendance throughout the National Mourning period, other than the bank holiday.
Mr N House, Headteacher, and Mr J Mirtschin, Acting Headteacher
