Dear Parents / Carers
Following the announcement from Buckingham Palace of the death of our sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a period of National Mourning has started and will continue until the end of the State Funeral. This is a period of reflection in response to the death of the Sovereign.
The official date of the State Funeral is Monday 19th September 2022. This day will be a bank holiday and settings that are normally closed on a bank holiday should close on this day as a mark of respect, which will include schools. This day will be treated as any normal bank holiday, therefore no work will be set for students on this day.
Therefore, please note that Pennington Junior School will be closed on Monday 19th September 2022.
For all schools, normal attendance is expected throughout the National Mourning period, other than the bank holiday on Monday 19th September 2022.
