Our Christian Distinctiveness
Our strong Christian distinctiveness is recognised as providing a unique commitment to nurturing and valuing all God’s children in our community. We encourage all to learn about the Christian faith but recognise that becoming a Christian is a personal choice of faith and we are respectful of each other’s beliefs. We warmly welcome families of all faiths and no faith.

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!
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.
We enjoy joining in with craft at ‘Connections’ on a fortnightly basis, as well as joining them for Collective Worship, including leading them in worship regularly. Class 1 also enjoy leading regular singing sessions at ‘Trinity Toddlers’.
