It is vital for schools to support children through their pain, sorrow and anxiety in order to help them cope. Many staff members feel anxious about supporting a bereaved pupil in school or early year's settings, or addressing bereavement and loss in the curriculum. These books will help teacher's structure discussion with individuals and groups.
Use during Assemblies to address the whole school, in Circle Time to prompt further discussion, or in one to one work if an individual child has suffered a personal loss in some way.
Covering bereavement, divorce, separation, loneliness and more!
