Bereavement policy launch!

Ainsley McGoldrick worked alongside Education staff and charities such as Child Bereavement UK to develop guidelines for school on supporting children who are affected by bereavement, loss and grief. There guidelines have now been launched at a recent training event which was very well attended by most school in East Renfrewshire. This training was positively evaluated and there is a plan to have a second day next year for those that could not attend. The guidelines provide schools with guidance on how to respond when a bereavement happens in the school community and has information on a number of resources to support this. Leaflets for parents/ carers and children / young people were also produced. There are going to be a number of themed workshops throughout the year to follow this launch. The guidelines and leaflets are now available on our website.
