On average, 1 in every 29 children will be bereaved of a parent. That’s one in every class. This is before the Covid-19 Pandemic. Now we have a situation with many children having lost someone they love recently including lots of grandparents. Children and young people need support from the school community to ensure that they can cope with their grief. That’s why it’s vital that teachers and staff understand how to support the grieving children and young people in their school.

Our online bereavement training course will help you understand:

  • What is childhood bereavement?
  • How grief affects a child or young person
  • The stages of grief
  • How you can help them cope with bereavement in schools

Aimed at both primary and secondary school teachers, the course will cover:

  • The importance of communication
  • Planning and preparation
  • When to seek further support
  • Help, support and self-care
  • Useful strategies to help
