Bank Holiday for State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Monday 12th September 2022
Dear Parents and carers,
NOTICE OF SCHOOL CLOSURE
State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Monday 19th September 2022.
Following the sad news last week of the death of the Her Majesty, details of the funeral arrangements have now been published.
As a mark of respect all schools in the Smart Muti-academy Trust will be closed on Monday the 19th, which has been designated as an additional bank holiday.
This will allow our staff children and their families to mark, in their own way, this historic and significant event in British history.
Registers for this day will be marked as additional holiday and absence will not affect attendance monitoring. During the remainder of the mourning period all schools remain open, and pupils are expected to attend as usual.
If any events in your school will be affected by this special closure, please contact the school directly and they will advise what arrangements have been made.
