Chaplaincy

1 Peter 2:21 “For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.”

 

A Brief History

Our School Chapel was officially opened and blessed by Bishop Declan in May 2014 and to support the daily running of the Chapel, a St Gregory’s School Chaplaincy Team was established. Now, as well as helping children to enjoy this special place in our school, the role of the Chaplaincy Team has evolved over the past 4 years so that each member aims to become a spiritual role model, offering others guidance and support and assisting in the prayer life of the school in a wide variety of ways. This team has even started to train other children and staff in aspects of chaplaincy and they regularly meet with other Chaplaincy Teams in neighbouring schools to share and build upon their wonderful work.

RE Inspection

The Diocese inspected the school in the Autumn term of 2016 and found us to be Outstanding.  Please CLICK HERE to view the report in full.

 

In our RE Inspection in 2016 we were praised for the work of the Chaplaincy Team:

 

  • “The prayer life of the school is inclusive and joyful. Prayer punctuates the school day and is part of every celebration. There is a strong focus on encouraging more pupils to organise and lead collective worship, following the excellent example of the chaplaincy team. The school chapel is at the heart of the school and used well.”
  • “The pupils’ ownership of prayer and worship is now led by an enthusiastic chaplaincy team which is having a growing impact on the involvement of all pupils;”
  • “The school council and the chaplaincy team represent the pupils’ voice to communicate ideas and feelings expressed by every class across the school. They feel their voice is heard and their opinions matter.  For  example,  they  play  a  key  role  in  choosing,  planning,  and  supporting fundraising initiatives such as St. Vincent de Paul and CAFOD.”
