In line with nearly all schools, If your child is a football fan and is likely to be staying up until after 11pm on Sunday to watch the final, you are welcome to let them stay in bed a little longer. We would rather have the children in school ready to learn, rather than absent all day and grumpy. The children will not be marked as late.
We will have the school gates open as usual from 8:40 until 9:30 am and the gates will reopen at 11am.
It is 55 years since England reached a major football final, so let them watch, talk about the importance of the national anthem, talk about pride and resilience and possible disappointment. This is a learning opportunity and memorable moment.
