Queen Elizabeth II

Dear Parents and Carers


We express our deepest sympathies for the passing of HM 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 will observe the mourning period but continue to support our pupils, families and staff. Unless otherwise stated, please assume any activities and events we have scheduled will continue as planned.

We will observe the national holiday scheduled (date to be confirmed) 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 endeavour to keep you up to date should there be any further changes. Should there be anything further we can support you with, please do not hesitate to reach out.


Thank you for your understanding.

Welling School
