Celebrating our Courageous Advocates

At The Vine Inter-Church Primary School, every Friday in whole school worship we aim to inspire our pupils to engage in social action and to be courageous advocates for change in the local, national and global community.

We develop understanding of what courageous advocacy is by introducing courageous advocates across the globe, both past and present, that have faced injustice and overcome barriers in order to help others for the greater good. 

We link these courageous advocates to our Vine Values and we celebrate pupils from across our school who have displayed associated behaviours and attitudes. The nominated pupils are presented with a Courageous Advocate Award and their name is added to our Courageous Advocate display.


We will be introducing our pupils to the following courageous advocates:
