Our Growing in Grief Awareness programme is a a whole-school framework, free to primary and secondary, special and mainstream schools across the UK.

It includes

  • a downloadable tool to audit current practice in promoting well-being among bereaved students, and developing the curriculum to prepare children to deal with bereavement
  • an automatically populated action plan tailored to the school’s needs
  • targeted resources to help address bereavement
  • links to local and national specialist training and support organisations

The programme aims to help schools plan ahead to

  • support pupils facing or following the death of someone important in their lives
  • prepare pupils to manage loss and bereavement in their lives.

By working through the framework, schools can demonstrate that they are Growing in Grief Awareness and download a logo to show their commitment. We are encouraging schools to kick off this work by auditing their practice and planning actions to take during the 2019/20 academic year.
