Our School - School Chaplain

What does a Chaplain Do?
The role of a Chaplain is to care. They are there for the child when he/she needs someone to listen to them.

A Chaplain can:

  • Listen to a child when they want to talk
  • Provide Pastoral Care (encouragement and support)
  • Run support groups/short courses (e.g. anger management, grief support, BUZ)
  • Help sort out a problem or issue with a child when they are disruptive or not coping in class
  • Refer a child to other professionals
  • Support teachers in class, helping out as needed
  • Listen to and help with student’s concerns
  • Be available to talk with parents about a range of topics, including when they have concerns about their children
