Catholic Life and Mission

At St Simon Stock Catholic School we are committed to embedding the Catholic life and mission in everything we do, from the crucifixes that hand in our classrooms to the support and provision we give to each member of our school community.

 

Our Catholic Life and Mission includes, but is not limited to:

 

Our Chaplaincy

We have our own full time Chaplain, Lauren Bassett, who works with students across the school both within and outside of lesson time supporting students, running reflections, running the student choir and leading the Sanctuary. In addition, we have great support from our local clergy from every Maidstone. We also have a Chaplaincy team who meet once a week.

 

Our support of Charities

The school’s commitment to supporting charities stems from Christ’s call to serve others: “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me…just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:35-36,40

 

As a school, we have four official school charities, which we support throughout the year in regular fundraising events, including:
Crisis Aid: https://www.crisisaid.org.uk/
CAFOD: https://cafod.org.uk/
Heart of Kent Hospice: https://www.hokh.org/

Our Lasallian Ethos

The Lasallian Ethos is based on the teachings of St John Baptist de La Salle who is the patron Saint of teachers. The five core values of Lasallians are, Faith in the Presence of God, A quality education for all, An inclusive community, Respect for all persons and Concern for the Poor and Social Justice.  Our school is an Associate Lasallian school, this means we are connected to the Lasallian Network around the world.

 

Our provision of Religious and Sex Education and Spiritual, Moral, Cultural and Social education

As a school we recognise the DfE Guidelines on education of Relationship and Sexual Education and we also follow the guidance given to us by the Diocese. Additionally, we recognise the DfE’s guidance on SMSC provision. We embed RSE and SMSC within our provision of Personal Development and Wellbeing (PDW) which is taken by all students, as well as across the curriculum.
