Our School Chaplain offers support for the emotional wellbeing of students, schools and their communities. Available every Monday & Wednesday and Friday, our chaplain’s services aim to support families, increase the resilience of children and strengthen links between the school and wider community.
The chaplain’s student pastoral care programmes focus on social and emotional skills which impact significantly on:
- enhancing academic achievement
- encouraging positive attitudes and behaviours by students towards themselves, others and their school
- reducing behaviour and mental health issues (such as truancy, aggression, criminal behaviour, drug and alcohol use, anxiety and depression)
- enhancing students’ social and emotional competence
Chaplains are also well positioned to support the spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing of teachers and the wider school community.
