Christian in Community
The King’s School is a family: Our aim at The King’s School is to serve the parents in helping to train children socially, academically, emotionally and spiritually, thus equipping them for life.
The Bible sees education as the responsibility of parents and it is for this reason that we welcome parents and other members of our churches to work alongside the staff to create a sense of family within the school. Just like families, there are lots of generations represented and as we work together we bring different God-given gifts and talents. Through the Holy Spirit we seek love and grace for one another, accepting each other’s differences and maintaining good relationships. It is our experience that the children will feel secure when the boundaries of love and discipline are in place and where standards are consistent.
The role of adults in The King’s School: The school is rightly named The King’s School. We, as adults, seek to set an example in serving Jesus in all that we do.
Colossians 3: 17 ‘And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him’
The school is a part of the larger body and fosters a relational atmosphere of love, acceptance and forgiveness alongside firm guidelines or boundaries Ephesians 4: 1 – 16
- Parents and teachers working in unity and harmony.
- This means the school recognises parental responsibility for the education of their children Eph 6:4; Prov 22: 6
- The school sees itself as an extension of the family’s home and church environment and therefore, seeks to serve the parents with the God-given expertise it has Deut 6: 1 – 9 ; 1 Cor 12:18
- It is only with the co-operation of parents that the vision of the school can be fulfilled. Two-way communication is key.
- School and church working together in unity and harmony
- This means the school recognises the spiritual authority given to the church and sees the necessity of the church and its leaders holding the school accountable for its actions Eph 4: 1 – 16
- Peer relationships which demonstrate and appropriate love and respect to each other 1 John 4: 7, 11
- Raising and releasing servant leaders that steward the whole of their lives:
- This means that the family, school and church work together in training up people who commit their lives to serving the purposes of God as revealed in their generation. Their aim would be to attain positions of influence and management within the sphere of God’s calling Eph 2: 10; 1 Peter 2:9
- A heart for the nations
- Which means we reveal God’s heart for the whole earth and spend time learning about and interceding for them as part of God’s larger family Matt 28: 19 – 20
- A commitment to engagement within society
Which means that we recognise we are part of society and, therefore, are willing to serve and bear responsibility in it
