Keep the student's family informed

Make sure you tell parents or carers about events that relate to their child’s death.

If you can, let the family know about significant events or changes to the school’s routine.

This might be about:

  • funeral arrangements
  • changes to planned activities or excursions
  • availability of extra wellbeing or counselling services in the school
  • support for siblings and close friends
  • changes to attendance, sign-in or sign out procedures, if they have siblings at your school.
