Dying Matters school lesson plan
Children see the world very differently to adults; their imaginations are still unprejudiced. Why not tap into this through education?
'To die will be an awfully big adventure.' - J.M. BARRIE, Peter Pan
Dying Matters together with the National Council for Palliative Care believes all secondary school pupils in England should be taught about issues relating to death and dying as part of the national curriculum.
Someone in the UK dies every minute, but many schools remain unsure how to best support pupils who are affected.
We have produced a number of resources to help teachers incorporate death, dying and bereavement into lessons. Access these using the links below.
