Bryn Offa School Vision – ‘Excellence and Enjoyment‘
At Bryn Offa, we aim to be the best that we can be while always encouraging others. We show care and respect to all in our local and wider community. ‘Whatever you do, do it whole heartedly,’ (Colossians 3:23). ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,’ (Philippians 4:13).
At Bryn Offa Church of England Primary School, Religious Education is at the heart of our Collective Worship and School Values. It helps to form our ethos, our character and influences the relationships developed between members of the school community. To support the children’s learning in Religious Education, we have visitors who talk about their faith, and visit places of worship.
Religious Education is taught from Reception to Year 6. Our curriculum, allows children to revisit and deepen their understanding of key Christian concepts and other world faiths, which include Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism. The children are challenged to think, talk and ask questions about these concepts and world faiths. Each class has a Reflection Book where children are encouraged to reflect on both personal and worldwide issues. We have a whole school Prayer Box which allows pupils the opportunity to share their prayers and feelings during Daily Worship.

Mr Singh visits Bryn Offa!
On Tuesday 23rd May 2023, we gave a warm Bryn Offa welcome to Mr Singh who has visited us from his home in Northampton. He first visited the school 6 years ago and we have been so excited to have him back. He has worked with each class and led a whole school assembly where he has shared his experience of being a member of the Sikh Community. We have all learnt so much and are very grateful to him for his visit.
