Grief and bereavement resources


Dealing with the loss of a member of your school community must be one of the hardest things schools have to deal with. Managing the range of emotions, differing opinions and official protocols can be incredibly challenging for any school leader.

Remember you are not alone in this. Journeying together through difficult times can make us stronger and more understanding of each other.

The hope of this pack is to give some guidance to leaders, an understanding of what grief might look like and practical support for those journeying alongside and journeying in grief. Please be assured of the support of the Canterbury Diocesan Education team and wider Diocesan family.
