At KSL we encourage and support our children to be "courageous advocates".
This means they champion causes which are special and meaningful to them.
These may be global issues or matters far more personal and closer to home.
We believe this develops resilience, teamwork, courage and independence and an understanding of the wider world and how they can help make it a better place, enabling our children to flourish.
At KSL we also believe courageous advocacy is a legacy, over time and for future generations; it is about the pupils in our school helping to serve the common good.
We want our pupils to believe they can change the world.
Within every person there is something wonderful and this can be used for kindness and good.
Our Christian vision inspires the whole school community to engage in social action and to be courageous advocates for change in their local, national and global communities.
Through our values of Perseverance, Respect and Love, our pupils want to help many causes and so organise and take part in a range of different causes, close to home and also the wider world.
LOCAL CHALLENGE AND SUPPORT
