A message to parents and carers
Following the announcement from Buckingham Palace of the death of our sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, you will be aware that 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. For all schools and further education settings, normal attendance is expected throughout the National Mourning period. This is in line with Department for Education guidance.
The official date of the State Funeral is 19th September 2022. This day will be a bank holiday and, as with all settings that are normally closed on a bank holiday, the schools of the Avonreach Academy Trust will be closed.
You can be certain that all of our staff will do everything required to reassure children and young people at this difficult time.
