Respecting Yourself: Growing Around Grief explores the delicate but important areas of bereavement and grief. Through the use of short film, pupils will learn to identify emotions, improve their understanding of bereavement and the grieving process, and develop skills needed to manage the effects of grief.

This resource is suitable to use with young people aged 7-11 in a classroom context. It can be used in pastoral sessions and is linked to the Health and Wellbeing criteria in the PSHE education curriculum, as well as the English curriculum. It consists of teachers' notes with the activity outlines, activity sheets to be used with learners, and the accompanying student-facing Respecting Yourself: Growing Around Grief (7-11) PowerPoint presentation.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
