The state funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

The Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Following the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Bowling Park Primary School today joins the rest of the United Kingdom in a period of national mourning. As a school community, we would like to express our deepest condolences.

Over the coming days and weeks, we will be marking this historically important moment with special assemblies and PHSE lessons. Together, we will consider as a school how we can best commemorate and pay our respects to Britain's longest serving monarch.

The school remains open as usual and full attendance is expected as per national guidelines. However, we will be limiting our communication/social media throughout the period of national mourning, providing only urgent and relevant updates as appropriate.

We will share further details when we are clearer about the arrangements for school closer to the time of the state funeral and the subsequent coronation of the King.

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Langley

Headteacher, Bowling Park Primary School

Please do not park on the yellow lines outside school or in any position which could be considered dangerous. Our top priority is the safety of children and families.

Staff may ask you to move your car if they believe you are parked in a place which makes crossing difficult for children. If this happens, please remember that they do this with children's best interests at heart.

Thank you.
