Bereavement and Loss in Schools
Do you feel your school could support children and staff better when they suffer grief or loss in their lives? This course will help you ensure that you have effective systems of support, pastoral understanding and appropriate rituals or opportunities to mark loss, to help through these difficult times.
This course is for all adults working with children in primary or secondary schools, including headteachers, teachers, support staff and governors. It will be of particular relevance to those with pastoral responsibilities for pupils and students.
