Grief and Bereavement

Dealing with the loss of a member of your school community must be one of the hardest things schools have to deal with. Managing the range of emotions, differing opinions and official protocols can be incredibly challenging for any school leader. Remember you are not alone in this, please be assured of the support of the Rochester Diocesan Education team and wider Diocesan family.

The pack below has been produced for schools, by the Diocese of Canterbury. It is an excellent resource and we thank them for their time and expertise in producing it, and their generosity in sharing it. The Canterbury team state that 'The hope of this pack is to give some guidance to leaders, an understanding of what grief might look like and practical support for those journeying alongside and journeying in grief.'

Please don't hesitate to contact John or Gemma, if you require any further support.
