Frightening events, such as the coronavirus pandemic, may cause a great deal of worry and concern for children and young people. While it is understandable to want to shield them from what is happening, it is good to discuss it in an honest but calm manner.
As part of our ongoing COVID-19 support, we have collated useful resources and links from organisations with knowledge in providing bereavement support to young people.
For other external information check out our Teaching and COVID-19 page or MyCollege for free teacher resources.
