Bereavement support

Back to Latest News

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

We understand that bereavement is faced by members of our school community at different times. Death can be difficult for young people to understand, especially when it is sudden. Children and adults will be confronted with a variety of emotions and grief will be handled in very different ways. At St Martin’s we care about all our students and the feelings they may be experiencing due to their loss. At this time, when we are unable to offer face to face support, we are at the end of the phone if you need any support. We have identified some websites that provide information to help to deal with bereavement. You can access our bereavement support page here.

Sadly members of our school community are being affected by bereavements linked to covid-19. Our thoughts and prayers are with all our staff, students and families who have recently lost loved ones. If you are experiencing a bereavement and are concerned about the impact on your child, please contact the school to speak to a member of staff, email or speak to our school Chaplain, Mrs Moorey.
