Leading On - Bereavement (Part 2) - Developing an Organisation-wide Approach

This session is the second webinar in a three-part series. It is recommended that participants view the introductory session Leading on…Bereavement: Part 1, before taking part in this webinar.

This session will focus on the first three to six months of grief and how schools and colleges can support families, individuals, and staff through a coordinated approach which brings together pastoral teams, HR, SLT and counselling support, along with a wider group of stakeholders.

By planning ahead, curriculum, assemblies, PSHE, and even PTA activities can all help to create a structure which helps people through grief.

Find out more about parts 1 and 3 of this series.
