Schools – how you can support SeeSaw

SeeSaw offers a specialist service to schools to help staff understand how young people might react to a bereavement and develop strategies that can be used to support them in the classroom.

We are often called when there has been a sudden death of someone in the school community. This could be a pupil, parent or member of staff. We frequently visit a school as soon as support is needed – this may be the same day.

We offer telephone support, school visits, staff support and resources. This service is available free of charge to all schools in Oxfordshire.

Many schools like to raise funds for us as a way of acknowledging this valuable service.

These are some of the ways schools support us:

  • A bake-off and cake sale.
  • Non-uniform day or wear something weird to school day
  • Quiz.
  • Fashion show.
  • Sports challenges.
  • Collection from carol services and nativity plays.

We have balloons and banners that you can use to decorate your school and publicise your event.

If you have your own ideas for fundraising we would be happy to hear from you.

Please contact our community fundraiser Lucy Wise on 01865 744786 or email her at if you want to talk through your ideas and find out how we can support your event.
