Information for schools from the DfE following Manchester Arena tragedy

To be completed by:

Time: - | Venue:

A large number of schools and colleges have been affected, directly and indirectly, by the tragic events that took place at the Manchester Arena on 22 May

The Department for Education have been working with many school through local authorities and the regional schools commissioners directly.

Nevertheless, the DfE want to continue to ensure that all schools and colleges are aware of the wide range of support available from local authorities, health services and third sector providers, to help them in supporting their pupils, staff, and wider communities including families. Young people and staff may also have questions or may want to speak to someone following the most recent incident, including in London on 3 June.  

There are a range of support services available – both to people in Manchester specifically and more widely across the country – and where they can be accessed, including information on mental health support, practical advice on issues such as disruption to public examinations, and resources to help discussions with young people about these issues.


If schools have any questions or concerns, they should contact their local authority.
