Please bear with us while we populate our site.
In the meantime, you will find useful policies, guidance and websites here that can be used with all children and young people.
Tragic Events: Guidance for Schools
You can access the Highland Council Psychological Service’s Tragic Events: Guidance for Schools here. A tragic event is an incident, usually sudden, which involves the experience of personal distress to a level that has the potential to overwhelm individuals. These incidents are wide-ranging and unpredictable in their form. They include bereavement as a result of the death of a member of the school community – for example, following an accident or illness or traumatic incident in the local community affecting the school.
The guidance is there to support schools to think about how they, along with support services, can support children and young people and their staff when a tragic event has occurred.
