The Chaplaincy Team is supported and led by the Chaplaincy Lead, Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. As part of their role, members of the Chaplaincy Team take part in termly training sessions so that they can learn how to best support pupils and teachers. It also allows the team time to bond so that they can support one another to carry out their responsibilities.
In our first training session this year (September 2019), we explored the attributes a member of the Chaplaincy Team needs to try and have. We then shared this with the whole school during Gospel Assembly.
Our training sessions also help us prepare for Leaders in Faith, when team members head to Foundation Stage and Key Stage One to teach a lesson to the younger children. This year we are teaching the children about the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
Have a look at the different principles below! The principles of Catholic Social Teaching, launched at The Catholic School of St Gregory the Great in September 2019, are the tools with which the children and staff learn how best to live, influencing our relationships with others, our understanding of what is right and wrong, how we make a positive contribution to society and how using the Catholic faith as an example, we can be responsible citizens making good choices for all.
