Family Bereavement: Support and Advice

Many of our families are facing struggles with serious illness and family bereavement during this time and we understand how much more difficult this can be to cope with when you are unable to be with your loved ones due to social distancing. If you have recently suffered a family bereavement, we would like to express our condolences at your sad loss. We want to do everything we can to support your family during this difficult time so please let us know by contacting your child’s tutor, Head of Year, or by emailing our safeguarding team: so that someone can call to offer you and your family further support.



Bereavement support is also available via the resources listed below, which can be accessed through the phone and internet. The following is a list of charities that can provide support/advice:


In partnership with an experienced school chaplain, this booklet has been put together by Church Army to help young people who have been bereaved during the Covid 19 crisis.



We have also provided mental health and wellbeing guidance to all of our students on the Ark Burlington Danes Academy website here.
