Adult lay Chaplain: Mrs Finch
On behalf of myself, the headteacher, the governors and all the staff I would like to warmly welcome our Pupil Chaplains “GIFT” Team appointed in October 2021. These children are in our current Year 5 & 6 classes.

We know you’ll do a fantastic job as God is in your hearts

The Role of a Pupil Chaplain

The role of a Pupil Chaplain is to serve as a member of their Chaplaincy Team to support the Catholic Life of the School.

They will be entrusted with the responsibility of:
• Giving joyful witness of Christ in our school.

• Providing support for staff in the delivery of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils across the curriculum.

• Pastoral care of staff and pupils.

• Assisting with the delivery and development of the prayer life of the school supporting assemblies, class prayer times and prayer groups.

• Developing the use of a chapel for anyone in school to use.

• Being present on parents’ afternoons and/or evenings, and other school events, to help with the welcome of all the community.

• Organising a variety of events to support local, national and international charities, for example: Cornerstone; Cancer charities; Local Food Banks
