In the course of a child's life at primary school, it is likely that they will encounter death - whether this is a pet, a relative or a family friend. It can be a challenging conversation to have so we hope that the information below is useful.
If you believe that your child is struggling to cope with a bereavement, Mrs Bexon is a trained bereavement counsellor who is able to offer in-school support. Your child's class teacher can give you more information.
