The B Group

The B Group is a support group aimed at those children affected by bereavement. We realise, perhaps more than ever, that children are affected in many ways by bereavement and at very different times throughout their experience. The group offers support and companionship to those who wish to come along. It is, more often than not, a time to quietly socialise, to share the weekly events, to mention achievements and also to share any worries. By introducing the bereaved children within school to each other they are able to gain support from their peers as well as the adults facilitating the group. The sessions give the children the opportunity to find space and time to relax and to access someone who will listen and understand the challenges they may be feeling and facing. 

In time, we hope to be able to share fond memories of those loved ones we have lost but we recognise that time is important- there is no ‘right’ way to grieve and we each react in our own way. Having the support and the space to talk things through can make all the difference.

The group is for all ages and we already have regular attendees from year 7 through to post-16 young people. The dimension this brings to the group is incredibly heart warming; our post-16 young people advise and support the younger students in such a mature and calm fashion. It is important for all to witness such kindness and to feel safe to disclose their feelings.


If you think you know someone who would benefit from coming along, do get in touch; we meet every FRIDAY at 11:10am in E3.


And, as always with Mrs Granville, there is cake.
