We express our deepest sympathies for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her dedication to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and to her other realms and territories is unparalleled and we thank her for her service.
Our school/trust will observe the mourning period whilst continuing to support our pupils, families and staff. Unless otherwise stated, please assume any scheduled activities and events we have scheduled will continue as planned. We will observe the national holiday for Her Majesty’s funeral, which means schools will be closed that day, but outside of this, school hours will continue as normal.
Our school will be keeping pupils informed of news about these events as part of assemblies and class activities. If you think your child may be experiencing particular upset due to the passing of the Queen, please do let us know so we can provide additional support if needed.
It is expected that there will be significant disruption across the UK, particularly in London, during this period, therefore we will endeavor to keep you up to date should there be any further changes. Should there be anything further we can support you with, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Thank you for your understanding.
Patron of Reading Visit
Our Patron of Reading, Sarah McIntyre, will be visiting the school on Wednesday 14th September. She will be leading assemblies, working with classes and spening time with the children so they can get to know a real life author. Children can bring one of her books to have signed and, at the end of the day there will be a bookstall at the front of the school selling her books so do come along to buy a book and get it signed if you would like to.
