We Will Remember Them
At 11am we stopped what we were doing and joined together for a Whole School Assembly to observe the two minutes silence.
Having people with the same goal
Mr Swain's latest weekly blog post continues looking at Provers 6:22 and is all about having people around you who have the same goal.
Having people with the same goal At the start of this series, on Proverbs 22 v 6, we looked at the importance of setting goals. We considered how this works for young athletes, remembering that “physical training is of some …
Training for character not attainment
“Physical training has some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4 v 8)
Mr. Swain has just published his weekly blog post continuing the series based on Proverbs 22.
This week he looks at training for character rather than attainment and how Christian parenting feeds in to that.
Read his post here: https://lifetothefullblogemmanuel.wordpress.com/2022/09/27/training-for-character-not-attainment/
Training for character not attainment Last time, following on from an introduction to Proverbs 22 v 6 which talks about the importance of training a child, we looked at a first aspect of training – that of having goals, both long and s…
Emmanuel School relies on donations from its supporters and local churches to be able to keep on doing the work that God has called us to do with young people in Walsall and the wider West Midlands.
This is why we launched our 100 for 10 appeal. Could you, your church or a group of friends help support us to continue the work of Emmanuel School by donating £10 a month?
Individually it doesn't seem much, but together we can make a huge difference!
If you or someone you know would like to donate to Emmanuel School you can do so here https://account.stewardship.org.uk/donation/oneoff/20185028
Proverbs 22 vs 6: "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
Mr. Swain's blog this week is the start of a series focusing on this Bible passage. Why not go give it a read and join in the discussion?
Last week, we had a lovely time when Sue Perks came to our Story Cafe. Parents and pupils really enjoyed acting out "We're going on a Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen.
Physical and Spiritual Training
Mr. Swain has written a new blog post marking the start of the new academic year.
It is all about Physical and Spiritual Training and focusses on verses that he has been reflecting on over the summer holidays.
Do take a look at the blog post and share it with anyone who may find it useful and interact with it and share your thoughts in the comments section on the blog as well.
Physical and Spiritual Training It has been a while since I posted. A hectic end of term led into a busy summer and then preparation for a new academic year. However, there has also been time for reflection and …
Below is a message from Headteacher Mr. Swain about our academic achievements and results in the last year:
We all know that it is the Christian ethos of the school that is the reason for our existence and the motivation for us continuing. We believe that the eternal outweighs the temporary.
However, amongst our five vision statements for our pupils is the desire to see them all reach their academic potential and, as a school, we have a responsibility to educate them well. This year, we have had a wonderful set of academic results. Whilst we do not want to ‘blow our own trumpet’ we do believe it is right to thank God for the encouragements, celebrate the hard work of pupils and teachers, and also to show that so many of our pupils really do flourish academically in their time at Emmanuel. Here are some of the stand out figures from last academic year:
50% of all our grades at GCSE were at 7 or above (compared to a national average of 26%)
91% of all our grades at GCSE were at 4 or above (compared to a national average of 73%)
100% of our pupils at GCSE got at least 5 GCSEs at grade 4 and above including Maths and English Language.
Our pupils, on average achieved 0.72 per grade higher than expected from their KS4 starting levels showing the value that we are adding over and above expectation.
86% reached a ‘Good Level of Development’ at the end of Reception
100% of pupils were working at age related expectations or higher at the end of Key Stage 1 and 2.
I am sure you will agree that we have a lot to be thankful for and trust that you will find these figures really encouraging.
This academic year we are continuing with our 'Off To Work We Go' series where we invite people in to talk about what their career is like and how our pupils can work towards that career for themselves.
Our first visitor of the year was a former pupil, Eleanor, who is now a midwife. Eleanor spoke to all of our pupils and to our younger children she told them about how babies need to be looked after and cared for and with our older pupils in secondary school, she spoke more about what her job entailed and how you can become a midwife.
Psalm 121 vs 1+2: I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Yesterday, we changed our plans to include a whole school assembly led by our Headteacher Mr Swain to reflect on the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
As a school we focused on some of the great characteristics of the Queen and her reign - her humility, steadfastness, work ethic, her commitment and respect.
As the assembly finished Mr Swain came back to our memory passage for the half term which is Psalm 121. One of the reasons why the Queen was able to show all these qualities and lead so well for 70 years was because she was very open that her help came from God and that he helped her during her reign.
Emmanuel School are devastated to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
We thank God for her years of dedicated service to our country and we pray for God's peace on her family at this time.
Welcome back to all of our pupils and families who are starting the new school year today!
Here's a picture of some of our staff yesterday in training preparing for the new year
Our staff have been in school for the last two days for training and preparing to welcome our students back for the first day of the 2022/23 academic year tomorrow.
We are excited to see all our pupils again tomorrow and we particularly look forward to welcoming all our new families into our school community.
Congratulations to all our Year 11 Pupils who received their GCSE results todays and are heading off to sixth form or college in September.
We're proud of how you've done and how you have coped with the unique difficulties the last two years have given you.
We will miss you and we pray for God's blessing on your life for the years ahead.

This weekend was the Love Black Country Together Festival 22 event which was designed to bring Christians together from around the Black Country.
We were really pleased to have a stand at this event and it was great to be able to talk to people about Christian education and what our school is about
This week marked the start of our End of Year Trips.
Students in our Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 had a trip to Sandwell Valley.
The children enjoyed a forest walk, exploring the ruins of an old priory, making dens and playing in the play park.
They were accompanied by several parents and everyone had a great time.
Our Year 11's finished their final GCSE exam on Friday of last week meaning it was also their final official day in school.
We are very proud of them for how they have coped with an intense exam period and now they have some fun end of year trips to look forward too.
We will miss our Year 11's who will be leaving us and moving on to higher education but we wish you all the best and pray for God's blessing on you for the future.
We also want to say a big thank you to Debra Mayo for coming and performing at the Emmanuel School Summer Fayre.
She was great to listen to and we enjoyed having her as part of the Fayre.
It was great to see so many former pupils at our Emmanuel School Summer Fayre last Saturday. We really enjoyed catching up with you all.
In particular it was great to see Amelia and her new husband Matthew attending the event. Amelia and her family attended the school for a good few years and it was great to see you again! As a school we want to congratulate you on your wedding and wish you all the best for the future.
We always love hearing from former pupils so do feel free to get in touch!
THE GRAND TOTAL
We want to thank all the volunteers and visitors for coming to the Emmanuel School Summer Fayre today we had a great time!
The grand total raised for the school so far is £1020.57.
Thank you all for your support and we thank God for people’s generosity both in giving their time and financially today
Kung Fu Panda has now arrived at the Emmanuel School Summer Fayre

It’s almost time for the Emmanuel School Summer Fayre. Join us in the school building from 10am-3pm for a great day with a bbq, cake sale, jumble sale, games, crafts and lots more!
Here is our jumble sale ready for people to come and look at!
There's just 3 days to go until our summer fayre. Join us on Saturday for a bbq, cake sale, crafts, games and lots more!
Today we want to thank Walsall Community and events from Tesco for supplying us with lots of things to use at the Fayre!
The Emmanuel School summer fayre is fast approaching and we are delighted to have been supported by Morrisons who provided us with a lot of chocolate for our chocolate tombola and we are very grateful for their support.
The Fayre is taking place on Saturday 18th June in the school building from 10-3pm and everyone is welcome!
We hope you all enjoyed your Jubilee celebrations last weekend as we remembered and celebrated Queen Elizabeth's 70 years on the throne.
As a school our Jubilee celebrations were on the day before we broke up for half term when we had a garden party and Jubilee activities to mark the occasion.
At the end of last term, we were so pleased to have a visit from Paul Willmott.
Paul has been in full time Christian work since 1994, aiming to present the truth of the Christian message in an engaging way. He works with schools & churches locally and nationally, using the skills that God has equipped him with including; Storytelling, Puppetry, Ventriloquism, Juggling and even riding a unicycle.
Our pupils loved his visit and we hope we will see him again soon.
Today is the start of the final half term of the year and pupils and staff came back to school this morning with the summer holidays coming ever closer!
We have a lot of exciting events happening this half term including our summer fayre on Saturday 18th June which you are invited to attend!
Today also marks one year since we started using our social media accounts on a regular basis!
Today is the final day of the half term and there is a special visitor in school!
Today we are taking a break from our usual timetable to have a special day celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.
This will include fun Jubilee activities plus a whole school picnic style lunch and an ice cream in the community garden.
The Bible instructs us to "pray for those in authority." The Queen is a remarkable lady, still working at the age of 96, she is our country's longest ever serving monarch. She is also a lady of great faith and integrity, determined to uphold the promises that she made at her coronation. It is well worth having a look at the wording of that ceremony, it is very Christian in content and the Queen seeks to uphold her promises. She needs our prayers and it is a great opportunity to celebrate her life and work.
Today is the last opportunity for you to apply for our secondary science vacancy!
If you or anyone you know is interested then please email [email protected] for an application form as soon as possible!
Every year, each English county has an Athletics Championship over a weekend with events split into 2 year age categories for the younger age groups.
On the 14th May, one of our pupils Simeon won the Warwickshire Under 15, 3000m. This is seven and a half laps of a running track which he completed in just over 11 minutes for his first county title.
It is really encouraging to see the successes of our pupils, (present and past,) so I do encourage you to let us know of similar achievements. If you have an achievement you would like to share please email us at [email protected]
Hebrews 12 – Fix your eyes on Jesus
Fix your eyes on Jesus – Hebrews 12
In his latest blog, Mr Swain writes about Hebrews 12 and how the best way to keep persevering in life is to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.
This is an incredibly encouraging blog post so share it with your friends, family and churches.
Hebrews 12 – Fix your eyes on Jesus In the last post, we looked at the need to know the purpose God has called us to and then to throw off everything that hinders us from reaching that purpose. The writer of Hebrews uses the im…
For the first time since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, our staff were able to go out tonight and enjoy a meal together and socialise.
Please pray for our staff as they work hard to look after the best interests of our pupils. We are very thankful for them!

We are also looking for people who are willing to donate prizes for the fayre and also any 'jumble' for our jumble sale. Again if you are able to contribute to that then please message us here or contact the school office.
Today marks the start of five weeks of GCSE Exams for our Year 11 Pupils. They all start today (as do the rest of the country) with their Religious Studies exam.

Swanage Trip Day 3
These trips away always go so quickly. Day 3 saw us heading back to Walsall. After a wet start, the sun came out and we were able to enjoy a couple of hours on Studland Beach before catching the Chain Ferry across to Sandbanks and heading home. There was still time for a walk up Beacon Hill. Some former pupils will remember that as steep, slippy and muddy. However, this year broke new records in the amount of slips and how muddy pupils got. Spirits remained high and we dried off, cleaned up and re-fuelled in McDonalds before arriving back in Walsall mid-evening, full of great memories and a greater understanding of the beauty and wonder of God’s Creation.
Interesting Fact – Sandbanks was once the 4th highest land value in the world and the celebrities who lived there included Harry Redknapp.
