Letter from the Chaplain 

Welcome.  Whether you are a pupil or a member of staff, a family member or a visitor, welcome to The King’s CE School

Working as School Chaplain in such a vibrant and diverse school community, alongside dedicated colleagues and inquisitive and imaginative pupils, is a constant source of joy and of blessing.  No two days are ever the same.  But what is a chaplain for? 

In the words of a Year 7 pupil, ‘A chaplain is there to listen and care, to pray for and bless the school’.  My aim is to try to live up to that challenge. 

For pupils and for colleagues my work includes 

  • providing and coordinating opportunities for collective worship and reflection 

  • facilitating prayer spaces 

  • being available as a listening ear 

  • assisting with the process of restorative practice where relationships have broken down and need restoring or healing 

  • being available to pray for individuals, events or situations 

  • working with pupils to explore and understand our emotions and the ways we might manage them in different situations 

  • leading and coordinating PSHE (Personal Social Health and Economic Education) and Citizenship lessons 

  • supporting those who are grieving or suffering 

  • engaging with pupils in outdoor spaces such as Eco Club and Gardening Club 

As part of my work, I engage with outside agencies and charities, with faith leaders from local churches and with representatives from other faiths through the Wolverhampton Interfaith Group.  Where possible I am also available to parents who would like a prayer.
