Looking at the future

Grief doesn't go away. It just changes over time. Therefore, bereaved pupils may continue to need further support throughout their schooling, although the nature of that support may change over time and in accordance with each pupil’s individual needs. Children and young people may revisit their grief as their understanding of the world changes over time. Grief can also be compounded by other major changes in their lives such as moving house, changing school or financial difficulties. The death of a close friend or relative is a life changing experience.
