Ysgol Trefonnen is a Church in Wales school and part of the family of the Church in Wales. The Church in Wales has a mission statement that expresses what it is to be a Church School:
“A Church School is a witness to the mission of Christ in the Gospel.
where Jesus Christ is our foundation;
where every person has equal value and the chance to grow and develop to their full potential;
where teachers, staff, governors and parents are committed to the education and development of the whole person;
where the search for knowledge is accompanied by a quest for faith and a journey of spiritual experience;
every child can learn of the richness of the created world and grasp every opportunity to contribute to it in life;
every member of staff can be nurtured in their vocation to teach;
every achievement can be celebrated and every shortcoming forgiven;
every person in this school can know that they are made in the image of God.
Every school should be a special place, a safe place, a place of learning, a place of nurture and of exploration. A school must demonstrate openness and acceptance, tolerance and forgiveness. Here, values and attitudes are formed and every individual is celebrated as unique.
A Church School is all of these things and develops a distinctive Christian character through learning, religious education, prayer, worship and action in the name of Christ that makes God’s love and presence known to the world.”
Here at Ysgol Trefonnen, we want to see our children grow into people who use their gifts and talents for the benefit of the wider community and work with others to live in harmony with the world on which we all depend.
