ODBE Excellence in Schools – Chaplaincy and the Church/School Relationship

14 November @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

This is a one-day course for clergy, laity, school heads/SLT and governors who wish to develop the relationship between the local church and the local school in a way that is mutually beneficial and enriching. It will seek to combine an understanding of the diocesan vision of being more Christlike for the sake of God’s world – Contemplative, Compassionate and Courageous – with the essence of being a strong and dynamic church school as articulated in the new SIAMS schedule.

This course will offer participants the opportunity to:

  • Articulate and audit the current relationship between the school and the church
  • Re-imagine new ways of understanding and building the relationship
  • Explore some resources which support healthy church/school relations such as:
  • The new Diocesan Contemplative Toolkit (an Ignatian daily tool designed to deepen school spirituality and improve mental health/wellbeing)
  • The Archbishop of York’s Young Leaders Award (a very popular character development scheme used in over 600 schools)
  • BeSpace (Prayer Spaces in Schools)
  • Discuss next steps for the relationship, such as establishing Chaplaincy,  or seeking Common Vision Development Funding

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the current church/school relationship in their context
  • Have a deeper understanding of possibilities and resources available to support the Church/School relationship
  • Feel confident about next steps in developing the relationship

Target Audience: This course is designed for clergy, laity and school leadership  who are actively looking to develop the relationship between the school, the church and the wider local community.

Leaders: Charlie Kerr & Angela Curran-Smith
