Although such an event is extremely rare, it is possible that at some point the College may experience the death of a student or member of staff. Equally, a student or member of staff may experience the bereavement of a family member or close friend. In such circumstances, it is important that the College acts as a source of support and care to both students and staff.
Bereavement may have a huge impact on the College community. It is important that the College is able to respond effectively to what may be a traumatic or tragic situation. This should be done in a way where disruption is kept to a minimum and individual students and staff feel valued and supported.
