Our Vision and Values
To create a welcoming Christian community where every child is viewed as a special person created and loved by God. Every member of our school community is valued for who they are and empowered to be the best they can be. We support every child to develop into lifelong learners who are resilient, socially skilled, and successful in all aspects of their lives.
‘Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.’ (Proverbs 22:6)
At Emmanuel we want everyone to strive to be the best that we can be. John Wesley inspires us to do this.
‘Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can
As long as ever you can.’

‘Encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.’ (Thessalonians 5:11 ESV)
