To develop children with a compassion for others in order that they make a positive impact on society and find fulfillment in relationship with God.
To ensure that each child meets their full potential in all areas of the curriculum and in so doing brings glory to God.
To promote development of the whole child: spiritual, intellectual, social, moral, emotional and physical.
We believe that each child is uniquely precious to God and uniquely gifted by Him and is able through His grace to have a meaningful relationship with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the education of children is a shared responsibility amongst parents, church and school and that the best outcomes for the child and society are when these three share a common mission for our children.
We believe that all wisdom and understanding comes from God and that academic, social, moral and physical development only reach their true value when set in the context of understanding God and His world.
We encourage parents to actively partner with the school by giving half a day a week to assist in school activities, from listening to readers to cleaning cupboards.
With each lesson we teach whether Maths, French or P.E. we endeavour to introduce a heart concept that enables our children to see the subject and therefore the world through God’s eyes.
We encourage the pursuit of excellence in all areas but consider effort and the resulting progress as the higher prize.
We encourage each child to grow in their relationship with God through prayer, worship and acts of service
We actively encourage each child to act with compassion within the school, within their home communities and within the world at large – in order that they might be a blessing both here and amongst the nations.
We seek to develop in each child a sense of God’s purpose and calling on their lives in order that they may participate in God’s mission to see the knowledge of His glory filling the earth. (Habakkuk 2v14)
Who is it for?
Emmanuel School is open for all those whose parents or guardians share our mission and values and will support the school in its practices.
Emmanuel School is a central part of East Midlands Christian Fellowships however we gladly accept children from families within other churches and faith backgrounds (including no faith at all) and from all spheres of society.
We accept children from across the city of Derby and beyond where it is feasible for the child to travel school and for the family to play its full part in school life.
Emmanuel School receives no Government funding for children beyond reception and although it is necessary therefore to charge a fee for each child’s education we make every effort to ensure that children are not excluded on grounds of finance alone.
