Guidance for Educational Settings Following a Suicide or Sudden Death
A practical toolkit to refer to in the event of a crisis
Suicide Postvention Guidance for All Schools
Thank you for choosing to download our Guidance for Educational Settings Following a Suicide or Sudden Death. This comprehensive document is designed to support teams to create policies and procedures for their setting and is a practical tool to refer to in the event of a crisis.
It contains reliable information and evidence-based advice to help schools and teachers navigate their way through an extremely difficult time.
We are proud to have co-written this resource with suicide prevention charity, The OLLIE Foundation, to provide leadership teams in schools and other educational settings with the detailed guidance needed to coordinate an appropriate, helpful and safe response following the tragic event of a suicide or sudden death in their community.
It can also be used to plan and inform a clear suicide response strategy just in case it is ever required.

Why Suicide Postvention is so Important
“We are extremely proud to have co-created this free resource with The OLLIE Foundation. It is research-informed as well as practical; designed to help schools feel better prepared for the most difficult and tragic of circumstances. We hope it enables staff to feel empowered with its actionable, evidence-based tips and better informed in the event of student suicide”.
“Any death in a school creates enormous ripples across the community. Our intention in partnering with Tooled Up Education to create this resource was to create a buoyancy aid for staff who may unexpectedly find themselves needing to navigate the immediacy and ongoing impact of a sudden death. We wanted to create something that would support individual staff and teams as they support everyone else and hopefully allow those ripple effects to be managed as compassionately and as gently as possible. Nobody wants to ever need this resource, but it’s here if a school, college or university finds they do”.
