Dear parents and 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 time for reflection in response to the death of the Sovereign.
The official date of the State Funeral is 19 September 2022. This day will be a bank holiday and St Raphael’s, as all schools, will be closed on this day as a mark of respect.
School will then reopen as usual on Tuesday, 20th September.
We are remembering Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family in our prayers at school.
