The Death of Her Majesty The Queen

It is with great sadness that Buckingham Palace announced yesterday the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

We have now entered a 10-day period of national mourning that will continue until the end of the State Funeral. Once details of the funeral are confirmed by the Royal Household, I will write to you with further guidance and information.

Schools and Further Education settings will remain open during the period of national mourning.  Normal attendance is expected. 

If children and young people are upset, Minded is a source of information to support children and young people to manage death and loss, with further support provided, if required, here in school.

Information can be found by visiting the Palace’s website for additional information about the mourning period:

Yours faithfully,


Gareth Jones
