CLIC Sargent launches unique resources to help teachers support children with cancer


LIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, has launched an innovative new guidance pack designed to help teachers support children with cancer.

The Cancer and school life resource contains advice and a lesson plan which can be used by teachers in a school where a pupil has been diagnosed with cancer. The pack also includes a DVD featuring children who have had cancer and their school friends speaking about their experiences.

The pack has been designed to help teachers communicate confidently with schoolchildren about childhood cancer as well as help pupils understand the illness and how they can support their classmate. The pack contains details of a teaching session, information about childhood cancer and treatment, and guidance on how to deliver the session and answer any questions from pupils which might arise. There is an age-appropriate version of the pack and DVD for primary and secondary schools.

Heidi Otranen, Headteacher of All Saints CE Primary School in Bishop Stortford, said: “All Saints is proud to have been involved in the development of the Cancer and school life pack. It can be difficult for students to know how to support a friend who is unwell, but this new resource will provide valuable guidance to teachers and pupils alike.”

Dara de Burca, Director of Services at CLIC Sargent, said: “We know from our

research that school communities play a crucial role in ensuring that children with cancer and their families receive the best support possible. This new resource pack is a much needed and important tool for teachers working in a school where a child has been diagnosed with cancer, and is the only one of its kind in the UK.”

uThe Cancer and school life pack is available to order from CLIC Sargent’s website, along with more details of the resources CLIC Sargent offers:
