Bereavement support policy

How might supporting children and young people experiencing bereavement during COVID-19 pandemic be different?

At Brookhurst we feel that having a Bereavement Policy in place will allow us to be proactive, rather than reactive, when responding to these difficult times.

This school is committed to the emotional health and well-being of its staff and pupils and we are dedicated to the continual development of a ‘healthy school’.

We wish to work towards this in all aspects of school life, and to provide an ethos, environment and curriculum that will support and prepare pupils for coping with separation or loss of a loved one, either through death or divorce.
