Becoming The Best We Can Be


It is important to remember that grieving is a normal, healthy process that can affect us physically and emotionally as we gradually

try to learn to live with the loss of someone that we love.


Losing someone important to us can be overwhelming, whether that be a family member, friend or a pet. Please let the school know if your family has experienced a bereavement as ELSA sessions can be tailored to support your child in a sensitive and nurturing way. Having had a bereavement, as a young adult, I can also empathise and support from experience.


Children and young people grieve just as much as adults, but they show it in different ways.
