Chaplaincy in Schools

CaSS is currently developing a project to encourage more chaplains in schools. Part of this includes running a course to train and resource those thinking of becoming school chaplains, those doing the role without the actual title and those interested in getting the conversation started around chaplaincy in schools.

 

Visit our School Chaplaincy Course page for information about the next course, in addition to photos and feedback from previous courses.

This is a website for chaplains working in schools to exchange information and resources. Take a look at their list of what a chaplain can bring to a school.

"Deeply Christian, serving the common good", is a fresh articulation of the Church of England's vision for education; a vision that is deeply Christian, with the promise by Jesus of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart.  This is worked out theologically and educationally through four basic elements: wisdom, hope, community and dignity.  This vision reaches beyond Church of England schools as it aims to offer a compelling vision for the education of children and young people in community, independent and church schools, sixth form colleges, colleges of further education and universities. Download a copy of the vision here.

SCALA is the School Chaplains and Leaders Association and is a good source of information about chaplaincy and faith in schools.

School Pastors is an initiative of Ascension Trust (who also set up the perhaps better known Street Pastors). The role of the School Pastors is to 'promote safety and aim to reduce anti-social behaviour. School pastors are there to listen, care and help young people to become good citizens.' Their website contains lots of information about becoming a School Pastor.

This centre for chaplaincy has been running short courses on chaplaincy for several years and is looking to offer more opportunities like accredited training, CPD, mentoring, placements etc.

The University of Chichester offers an MA in school Chaplaincy. Suitable for ordained and lay individuals, this course has been specially developed for school chaplains working in schools and academies.
