Child Bereavement UK have produced a reasource to empower teachers and professionals to support children. Follow the link here.
Supporting a bereaved pupil is a source of support and information, with practical guidance, to empower education professionals to support pupils bereaved of someone important to them.
Most grieving pupils do not need a ‘bereavement expert’, they need the support of familiar adults in a secure environment. Schools, just by carrying on with their usual day-to-day activities, while acknowledging the bereavement, can do a huge amount to support a grieving pupil. Bereaved young people tell us that the way their school responds at such a difficult time is something they never forget.
