Supporting a bereaved pupil

Empowering teachers and professionals in education to support bereaved pupils

A parent of children under 18 dies every 22 minutes in the UK; around 23,600 a year. This equates to around 111 children being bereaved of a parent every day.

1 in 29 5-16 year-olds has been bereaved of a parent or sibling – that’s a child in every average class.

This comprehensive, free-to-access training tool has been developed for staff in schools, to help develop their understanding, skills and confidence to support pupils and their families when they experience a bereavement.
