Our Christian Distinctiveness

Our Christian distinctiveness is a huge area of pride and commitment for our school community.

We were judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas in our latest SIAMS Report

  • This school offers all learners an outstanding curriculum which reflects the adventure of learning and the Christian distinctiveness of the school
  • The quality of relationships between adults and children makes this school an exceptionally happy and secure place for learners
  • Collective worship is approached enthusiastically by children and adults alike and fulfils its purpose in drawing the school community together in the presence of God
  • The leadership of the Head teacher and the Governors has enabled the school to offer a sound understanding of Religious Education and Collective Worship to young learners as a gateway to a spiritual world into which they may venture with confidence.

We have close links with Holy Trinity Church . We are lucky to be able to use this fantastic space for Collective Worship, Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Leavers’ Services as well as our PE lessons!

Their Kids and Families Worker Susannah Thackray and their Youth Worker Joel Newall organise and lead multi-sensory activity days within school. Last academic year we had a ‘Prayer Spaces’ day and we are looking forward to our ‘Lord’s Prayer’ day soon.

Once a week members of various church communities within Southwell lead our Collective Worship using ‘Open the Book’ to help us to explore the big picture of the Bible.
