Parent View


Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. A screencast demonstrating how to register and complete a survey on Parent View is available on the How to use Parent View page. Or click on the Parent View image at the bottom of the page.

When inspecting education in independent schools, we recommend when inspection should take place but inspect at the request of the DfE

By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school. Or, if you want to, view the results for any school in England




Emmanuel Junior Academy was inspected by SIAMs (Statutory Inspections of Anglican and Methodist Schools) in June 2022. School was judged as GOOD overall for its effectiveness and distinctiveness as a Church of England School. 

The inspector said that...


'Emmanuel Junior Academy is a warm and caring place where everyone feels safe, valued and included. Parents are supportive of the school, describing it as ‘the Emmanuel family’.

Everyone is striving to ‘be the best they can be’.  Pupils know they are part of a joint Methodist Anglican Church school and have learned about John Wesley as part of their amazing people project. They talk about ‘do all the good you can’ explaining that ‘ideally you should think about it all the time’.


The following strengths were identified


  • The renewed Christian vision is increasingly becoming part of the school's daily life and can be seen in the strength of relationships. As a result, everyone is valued and cared for.
  • The school vision is driving leaders in their commitment to support all pupils, particularly those with special needs and/or disabilities, so that they all flourish.
  • Collective worship is a valued time for pupils and adults to explore the school's vision and their own spirituality. The opportunity for pupils to be worship leaders is beginning to enhance the worshipping life of the school.
  • Pupils value the opportunities that religious education (RE) gives them to explore, in a safe environment, their own views and opinions. RE is enabling pupils to grasp key concepts in Christianity.
  • However, their understanding of world religions is less evident.
  • The vision is empowering adults and pupils to be the best they can be. Difference is celebrated here and all are valued as unique individuals.
