Bereavement support

For most of us, bereavement will be the most distressing experience we will ever face.

Grief is what we feel when somebody we are close to dies. Grief is a very personal experience, everyone experiences it differently; there is no 'normal' or 'right' way to grieve; we need space to deal with our feelings in our own way.

If you suffer a loss  you feel school can help you in any way, please do contact us. The links below provide access to support you and your child through this difficult time.
