School Vision and Values

Bryn Offa Vision – ‘Let your Light Shine’ Matthew 5:16

At Bryn Offa, we aim to be the best that we can be while always encouraging others. Our vision is the heart of our school. We seek to follow the example of Jesus in all that we do. We believe that the Sermon on the Mount is a vital chapter in scripture, teaching us to let the light of Jesus shine through us. This reminds us of the importance of our actions. Our actions allow us to let our light shine and allow us to share the light of Jesus with those around us. Our Christian Vision rejoices in every child; We show care and respect to all in our local and wider community.

At Bryn Offa, we aim to: 

Provide a safe, healthy and caring environment where children can thrive emotionally, physically and morally

  • High standards and expectations of behaviour and discipline
  • An effective pupil voice allowing pupils to be openly expressive and encouraging others
  • A strong moral code underpinned by Christian values
  • Safe and stimulating physical activity


Promote an enjoyment of learning and the highest possible achievement for all learners

  • High standards of teaching and learning
  • Stimulating, enjoyable and personalised curriculum
  • Accurate and meaningful assessment
  • Support for the least able and enrichment for the most able


Develop confident and responsible children with the skills and attitudes necessary to become successful

  • Well-developed PSHE curriculum with school values embedded into lessons
  • Develop respect for each other and a respect for diversity
  • Accepting every child is unique and developing the individuality of every pupil
  • Ensure fun and enjoyment are at the centre of everything we do


Be a source of pride for the local community but also to see beyond it

  • Opportunities to contribute to the local and wider community
  • An engagement with all stakeholders
  • Links with other schools and communities
  • Give a high priority to minimising the environmental impact of the school

Bryn Offa Christian Values

As a Christian church school we are rooted in faith but reach out to all. At the heart of our school are a set of core Christian Values. These underpin our whole ethos, curriculum and school life and aim to ensure our pupils leave Bryn Offa C of E Primary School as happy, secure, caring and responsible citizens. The values we promote are important within the school community and are values which will be important throughout life. In all that we do we strive to share, encourage and demonstrate positive values with our children; in order that they understand them and strive to live by them.

During the school year in our Collective Worship we focus on Christian festivals including Harvest, Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension and Pentecost. Bible stories and our Christian values link closely in with these to form the basis of our Collective Worship time – an importance is also placed on times of spirituality and reflection for the children as a time to contemplate on their own beliefs, values and experiences.

Our Monthly Christian Values are:

  • Compassion
  • Truthfulness

These values are designed to promote spiritual and moral development.
