Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will all be aware there was a major incident at London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night. I would like to start by saying that all our thoughts and prayers are with those who were caught up in these sad and tragic events.

I know that many of you will have been very distressed by this incident, especially as it happened so close to our schools and to where many of you live.

We expect that some children may be worried returning to school today and I want to reassure you that all school staff will be there to support the children through this. We are a school community and that is what communities do; they come together through the bad times as well as the good. If there is anything you are worried about please come in and talk to us.

The following links from the NSPCC and from BBC Newsround offer some advice you may find useful on how to support children who may be worried.

We are all proud to live and work in London and be part of such a diverse community. As a school we will not allow these events to stop us working together. We will continue to learn about and celebrate all our religious and cultural differences.

Thank you all for you continued support.
