Our chaplaincy team is led by our chaplain who is available to listen to and serve the needs of all within the school community.  Our chaplain offers a listening ear, a loving heart and a wise mind in helping all to navigate their ways through the challenges of life.  In addition, chaplaincy promotes positive relationships with each other, and with Christ, and offers a restful place of contemplation, prayer and reflection.

De La Salle School has a dedicated chapel which is used for school and community worship, and as a peaceful and safe space for all.

Section 48 Inspections

If a school has a religious character, denominational religious education and the content of collective worship are inspected under section 48 of the Education Act 2005.  The governing body of a school (or foundation governors in the case of a voluntary controlled school) is responsible for setting up the section 48 inspection and for appointing that inspector.

At De La Salle School, section 48 inspections are carried out by the Archdiocese of Liverpool Christian Education Department.

In the most recent inspection, De La Salle School was judged to be Good in its provision of Catholic Education.
