Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Chaplaincy Team

The Chaplaincy Team consists of children within Key Stage Two who perform many duties in school throughout the year including: meeting weekly to discuss and deliver the Gospel  during assemblies, plan and lead collective worship in Key Stage One, as well as planning and leading fund-raising activities throughout the year. In turn, they encourage the children throughout the school to live out their faith in their daily living.

Recently due to Covid 19 restrictions, numbers were reduced so that our current team consist of children from Years 5 and 6, but normally any pupil from Y3 upwards can join the Chaplaincy Team. As restrictions are being lifted the children from Years 3 and 4 will be actively encouraged to join later this year.

‘What’s On’ for Your Chaplaincy Group

The team meet once a week - their current goal includes the threefold intent of carrying out:

  • Strengthening our school mission;
  • Deepening prayer;
  • Enabling communion.

The team has written an action plan for the year (see below), focusing on ways to develop the above aspects within school. Meeting each week gives the opportunity for the children to come together to discuss and plan things that we can do in school.


The Chaplaincy Team have taken part in many activities, so far this year they have…

  • Attended a Chaplaincy Team Day with Chaplaincy Teams from other schools within the Newman Partnership.
  • Organised and raised money for Afghan refugees through a whole school raffle.
  • Planned and led Liturgical Prayer in Key Stage One every week.
  • Planned and organised a 'Walk against Hunger' for CAFOD.


Message from our Chaplaincy Team:

“As part of our role in the Chaplaincy Team we work together to try to make our world a better place. We do this by helping others in our school, our local community and around the world, bringing them into a closer relationship with God.

We try to follow Jesus’ commandment to ‘Love one another as I have loved you’ in all that we do.”
