Childhood cancer

We no longer produce the booklets Welcome Back and Children with a Brain Tumour in the Classroom.

The Royal Marsden hospital produces two virtually identical booklets. You can access the details of these on their website 

The children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent has produced two PDFs specifically aimed at primary school teachers.
Talking to primary school children about cancer- tips & suggestions for talking to children when a member of their class has cancer
Returning to school- primary- information on ways to help make a child’s return to school after treatment as smooth as possible.

The Children’s cancer and leukaemia group (CCLG) also have a leaflet called Resources for school staff -  visit the CCLG publications page

If you would like any additional information you can contact our Cancer Information Nurse team on 0808 800 4040 or email cancer.info@cancer.org.uk
