About this event

A 3-hour interactive online workshop which explores the impact of grief and bereavement in schools, nurseries, colleges and other educational settings. Focusing on the important role of a school when managing bereavement, delegates will consider how to develop a bereavement-aware culture within their setting, and the resources needed to create their own ‘bereavement tool kit’.

Learning outcomes:

You will:

  • Develop an understanding of the impact of loss and grief on children and young people's physical and emotional health, including their learning.
  • Gain insight into children and young people's reactions to loss and grief, and how a school might respond to meet the needs of grieving pupils.
  • Consider strategies for pastoral support appropriate to the age and developmental stage of the pupils.
  • Recognise the importance of creating a bereavement-aware culture within school, and the implementation of a robust bereavement policy or charter.
  • Explore a range of resources and support information to establish a ‘bereavement tool kit’ for your school/setting.
  • Gain information about Child Bereavement UK and other support organisations and resources available.
