Bank Holiday Announced to mark HM The Queen’s Funeral

 

Following the proclamation of King Charles III at the Accession Council on Saturday, His Majesty has approved that a bank holiday will take place on Monday 19th September for the sad event of her late Majesty’s state funeral.

 

The government has announced that schools, including Newtown C of E Primary School, will be closed on this date.

 

This allows all individuals to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning. 

 

The Senior Leadership Team recognise that this may be a very difficult time for a great deal of people and that it is important for people to know that any feelings people are having of sadness and grief associated with this sad occasion are valid. If you would like some support regarding bereavement and/or dealing with loss please contact us or visit our website where we have signposted bereavement charities where you can access support.

 

As a school, we will also be sending a collective message of condolence to HM King Charles III and the royal family via https://www.royal.uk/send-message-condolence. Please feel free to also send your own message, should you wish. In addition, condolence books at Gosport Borough Council will be opened and available for members of the public to sign at the Town Hall from Monday to Friday 09:00 - 17:00.  Additional books of condolence are available at Gosport Discovery Centre, Holy Trinity Church and St Faith's Church, Lee on the Solent.
