February Half Term Activities
It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that, following the incident outside school last Monday, our pupil Seth Bartle died on Sunday 21st January, . He was surrounded by his family.
We have been in touch with Seth’s family, who wanted his friends to know what had happened. Your child’s class teacher has talked about Seth’s death in a way that they understand and has taken time to answer some of their questions. Seth’s family have asked that they are given space and time to grieve in private.
You should know that the staff and children have been amazing in how they have supported each other. Following advice, we have been able to keep the normal pattern of the day, whilst having the time to comfort each other when this has been needed.
As I said in my letter last week, it is important that our children are given the opportunity to ask questions, if they have any worries. The advice we have been given is that we talk openly about Seth having died.
Lastly, if you yourself have any worries about how your child is responding to the news of Seth’s death, please talk with their class teacher or contact me through the school office.
