School Leadership Podcast May 2019

In this month’s episode we discuss a difficult, but vitally important topic – childhood bereavement.

Shockingly, around 1 in 29 children will be bereaved of a parent or sibling during their time at school and of course, many more will experience bereavement of other family members or friends.
Yet, if you’re like most other teachers and school leaders, you have probably received very little, if any, training on this sensitive topic.

We talk to Emma Muirhead from the charity Winston’s Wish about what school leaders can do to support bereaved children.
