Every family will have, at some time, a bereavement within the family or within a close circle of friends.

At Ellingham Primary and Woodton Primary Schools we recognize that these times of our lives can be very difficult, emotional and can impact on our children.

With this in mind, many of our staff have received training from Nelson’s Journey, a Norfolk based charity, to support children at these difficult times.

We have various resources available which can be used by the children both in school and at home.

Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you are expecting to or have experienced a bereavement.

We happy to support you throughout this time. If wish to learn more about Nelson’s Journey we have a booklet in school and can make a referral for you to their services.

The school has very kindly been given a set of books for children experiencing bereavement from Rosedale Funeral Home. Please ask the school if you feel your child would benefit from the books.
