Change to May Day bank holiday 2020

The Government has recently announced that next year May Day will take place on Victory in Europe (VE) day to celebrate the end of World War Two. This means that the bank holiday will be Friday 8 May 2020 and not Monday 4 May 2020. Schools should therefore be open as normal on Monday 4 May 2020 and will be closed on Friday 8 May 2020.
