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.
CaSS runs a private Facebook Group for chaplains and those who have attended the training course. You can ask to join the group here.
Below is a list of organisations and resources related to chaplaincy in schools. We hope they are useful.
"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.

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. Click on the image above to visit the website.
