Following the sad news of the passing of teacher, Mr Sam Whitehouse, after a long battle with cancer we are planning many events to celebrate Sam’s life. The first being an open day on the first Friday back where school will be open to share our thoughts as we sign a book of remembrance. 

He will be greatly missed. A huge loss to school as we lose a great teacher and a good friend to colleagues, parents and children. I am sure he will have touched your hearts as much as he touched ours.

Please help us to make this loss slightly easier to understand by gently sharing this sad news with your child.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Sam’s family and his friends and we share their grief. 

Please click on the link below which is a leaflet called Coping with Trauma and Loss, which explains some common reactions and sources of help and support around bereavement.
