Holy Rood's Chaplaincy Team
At Holy Rood School, we are fortunate enough to have our very own chapel which was blessed and opened by Bishop John Sherrington in 2013.
As part of their role, the chaplaincy team supports pupils across the whole school from EYFS to Year 6 in developing and deepening their faith. They regularly lead small group prayer during lunchtime. In addition to this, the chaplaincy team also read and share Bible stories with pupils and engage the whole school community in activities to enhance their understanding of God and their own faith.
On a termly basis, the chaplaincy team lead whole school assemblies on liturgical themes. On a half termly basis, the chaplaincy team support and lead a collective worship in the classroom. Further to this, during significant liturgical events in the year, such as Lent and Advent, the Chaplaincy team support pupils in developing their understanding of the importance of these by leading whole school acts of worship such as ‘The Walking Stations of the Cross’. Each year, at Harvest time, our chaplaincy team also organise our annual food collection for the Watford Food Bank.
