Learning in love - Growing in faith

Christian Faith

Trefonen Church of England Primary School is proud to be closely linked with All Saints’ Church. We teach the basics of the Christian faith, using the Bible as our source book. and we also visit the church termly, with the church community visiting the school for regular assemblies. Underlying all this is our belief that the teachings and example of Jesus Christ should guide us in our running of the school and in our relationships with children, parents, carers and each other.

Collective Worship 

Our collective worship is either whole school, Key Stage or class worship takes place daily, either in the hall, classroom or outside in the school Reflection Garden and grounds. There are termly themes of worship and visitors from the community and the church often lead the worship. Christian Youth Workers may also run Worship Workshops in the classes and some Year 6 pupils are elected as Prayer Leaders, who then lead prayers during whole school worship.


Prayer is an important part of our school life. Children write and lead prayers in class and assemblies. Each classroom has a reflection area, quiet reflection times are part of worship so that children can think about important issues to themselves and be calm and still in their busy days. 


All Saints' Church

Being a church school, our children have the very special opportunities for collective worship in All Saints' Church. Here we meet to celebrate:

  • Harvest and the courageous advocacy of our community through our links with Oswestry Food Bank;
  • Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus through nativities and contemporary dramas by the pupils;
  • Easter we reflect upon the values of forgiveness and loss;
  • While our Creation Celebration in the Summer term values the natural world.
