‘Schools ‘need support of government to help grieving children’’

June 18, 2019

"There is no government-led national bereavement policy for schools despite the equivalent of every classroom in the UK containing at least one child who has lost a parent or sibling, according to a report into the consequences of childhood bereavement in the British school system."

In relation to this article The Little Book of Bereavement for Schools is written by bestselling author Ian Gilbert together with his three children. It is a very personal account of the way educational institutions tried and succeeded, tried and failed and sometimes didn’t try at all to help William, Olivia and Phoebe come to terms with the death of their mother.
