Woldingham School's Chaplain is working with the Headteacher of St Mary's Catholic High School following their recent Ofsted/Section 48 Inspection to develop a strategy for the role of Chaplaincy within the school and to promote its future development.

Aims of the project

This partnership aims to promote good practice in Catholic education, promoting attainment, and developing collective worship and personal development of the pupils helping them to achieve and progress.

Background and goals

St Mary's Headteacher has put a group together to develop Chaplaincy in the school which will support and develop strategy to help with pupil progress and attainment.

Resources

Impact

St Mary's is a mixed 11-16 maintained school.

Frequency and duration

This programme will be ongoing with four meetings per year and it will continue to ensure that the school provides quality of teaching, learning and assessment.
