Information for Schools and Colleges
1 in 25 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling while at school.
School is one of the most stable places in a child’s life and how bereavement is handled there can make a big difference to their lives.
It can be difficult for teachers and staff in schools to support a bereaved child, they may feel uncomfortable and feel that they don’t have the skills necessary, or even be worried that they could make the situation worse.
With information and resources Simon Says can equip those that work in schools to help children cope with their feelings while holding on to memories of the person who has died.
