Bank Holiday – Monday 19th September 2022
As you will have probably heard, Monday 19th September 2022 will be a national Bank Holiday in respect of the State Funeral for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Department for Education announcement to Headteachers and school leaders stated the following:
The official date of the State Funeral is 19 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. This will include schools and colleges.
Therefore, Gatehouse Primary Academy will be closed on Monday 19th September. The school will re-open and continue as normal the following day, Tuesday 20th September.
I would like to extend thanks to the staff, parent/carers and pupils for their skilled and sensitive handling of the death of the Queen with our children.
Whilst the country mourns the death of our monarch, a family have lost their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother – our thoughts, sympathies, and condolences are with them.
If you require any support in light of this recent news, please do not hesitate to contact us through the normal communication channels. We are here to support you.
Thanks for your co-operation and support as always.
Mr Stephens and the Gatehouse Team
