‘When somebody dies’: How to create a school bereavement policy – Conference 17th May 2017

Without a bereavement policy when somebody dies in a school community a difficult situation can be much harder to cope with.

Due to high demand we are holding a second special conference for Senior Leaders from schools entitled ‘When Somebody Dies’. This will provide practical expert guidance on how to develop a school bereavement policy and procedures. All delegates will receive a comprehensive resource pack and template policy which they can tailor and implement at their schools.

• Special guest speaker: Rosie Mather (Child Bereavement UK)
• Date: Wednesday 17th May 2017, 10am – 3pm
• Venue: Ashford International Hotel
• Cost: £100 (including lunch)

“During the most difficult time imaginable for our school community the information and material from the ‘When Somebody Dies’ conference I attended proved invaluable”
(K. Linnane, Assistant Head, St Joseph’s Primary, Herts)
