In this past week it feels like the world has changed.
We are surprised by the reaction of so many, we are saddened by the death of the Queen.
As a school we are thinking about belonging this term. As we explore what it is to belong to our school and community, we will think about belonging to our Federation of schools and to the nation.
As a country we will gather to give thanks for the life of Queen Elizabeth II, we will pray for her family and the new King and we will consider the future.
Our children started new classes this year, many with new teachers, all in new year groups. May we encourage them to live life to the full and serve their community as they grow - just as our precious Queen did throughout her life.
May God bless us as we give thanks for the past, pray for the present and look to the future.
