Step by Step’s guidance for funerals:
- We recommend that parents or guardians accompany students who want to attend.
- Those who don’t attend should have normal classes to go to.
- If appropriate, engage the faith leader prior to the funeral to suggest that eulogies should be fitting and do not sensationalise what has happened.
If you have any questions about funerals following a suspected suicide in your school community, call the Step by Step team today 0808 168 2528* or email firstname.lastname@example.org
