Our Vision and Values

Our Vision

Encouraging everyone’s light to shine (Matthew 5:16)

Essendon School strives to be a caring and inclusive Christian community which values each individual and encourages their light to shine in spirit, mind and body.


Our Values: The Essendon Way

To achieve our vision of 'The Essendon Way', we teach six key values; focusing on one each half term. Based upon the Christian value of love, the five Essendon Values are:


  • Love yourself

  • Love others

  • Love God

  • Love learning

  • Love the world you live in


These five Essendon values underpin everything we do and teach as a school, helping to develop our children as both individuals as well as members of a wider global community
