It is with great sadness that I write this message with the sudden passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, yesterday afternoon.
As was very clear from the Jubilee celebrations in May, Queen Elizabeth was a person who was loved across all generations like no other. It is impossible to fully comprehend the impact she has had on Great Britain, and the world, during her 70 years on the throne, but we will all be able to reflect on what she has meant to us individually.
Today, during school, time will be taken for reflection, through assemblies, a minute’s silence and circle time. The aim will be to allow children to focus on how amazing our Queen was and how her life as been one of devotion to her country and her people.
