A death that affects the whole school

  • Some deaths affect the whole school. For example, if a playground supervisor or teacher died. In these situations it is important to release the news in a managed way so that people do not find out haphazardly and through overhearing discussion etc.
  • You will need to decide who needs to know the news first and how it is to be disseminated throughout the school community, Remember to include part-time staff, absentees, and outside contacts such as drivers or regular health service staff.
