Support for Schools

For primary schools

**This service is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak**

For primary school pupils we have been working together with schools and bereaved families to produce a new Bereavement Resource Pack. This includes essential information on dealing with bereavement in schools, as well as four different classroom activities which can be used to teach children about bereavement or address specific issues when a bereavement has occurred.


The pack costs £10 and can be bought from our shop or from the city centre office.

For older pupils


We provide adhoc advice and guidance on how best to support this age group during a bereavement. 


We offer a range of leaflets and literature  into schools and can support in the event of a bereavement on site, as well as offer training on working with a child’s grief for pastoral and teaching staff. 


A small charge is made for this service.

For staff


For teachers and school support staff we offer one day course in Working with Grief (Families, Children and Young People).


This is a popular training course which receives excellent feedback. One delegate said:


This was the best training I have ever received through work


For more information, or for dates of upcoming training days, do take a look at our training tab.
