RAINBOWS BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT
At St. Oswald's we are able to offer families the ‘Rainbows’ programme for your children. This programme is to support children who have had some form of loss in their lives; this could be through parent separation, a death of a family member or a family member who has had to leave the family home for any other reason. The programme is specifically designed to support children in working through their feelings of loss, to put their feelings into words and to begin to accept what has taken place in the family.
The short weekly sessions are run by our ‘Rainbows’ trained teaching assistant.
To find out more information, or if you think your child would benefit from these sessions, please see your child’s class teacher or Mrs Arthur.
What do the children think of Rainbows?
We asked the children about their experiences of Rainbows. Here are some of the comments, from the children who have completed the Rainbow course.
'I think Rainbows helps when you are sad and I can trust the people.
It really helps you through hard times.'
'Rainbows is really good, helpful and I made new friends.'
'It helps people with worries at home to learn to trust
