The Lord’s Prayer


Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Infant Grace usually sung before lunch

Thank you God for food to eat

Thank you God for food to eat

Thank you God for food to eat

Right where we are!

Infant prayer for the end of the day

God our Father

Hear our prayer

Day and night we’re in your care

Bless all those with whom we play

Make us kinder every day.

Junior Grace before lunch


For what we are about to receive

May the lord make us truly thankful.

Junior end of day prayer


Lord, keep us safe this night

Secure from all our fears

May angels guard us whilst we sleep

‘Til morning light appears

Thank you for Gillamoor School

Where God’s love is sown, grown and taken home.

RE Curriculum

RE is determined locally, not nationally:

Religious Education in North Yorkshire is supported by SACRE (The Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education) and the School Improvement Service.

A locally agreed syllabus is a statutory syllabus for RE recommended by SACRE through an Agreed Syllabus Conference for adoption by the local authority. The RE curriculum drawn up by SACRE, shall reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain’. Education Act 1996 section 375.

Maintained schools

  • North Yorkshire Local authority maintained schools without a religious character must follow the locally agreed syllabus.
  • Voluntary aided schools with a religious character should provide RE in accordance with the trust deed or religious designation of the school, unless parents request the locally agreed syllabus.
  • North Yorkshire foundation schools and voluntary controlled schools with a religious character must follow the locally agreed syllabus, unless parents request RE in accordance with the trust deed or religious designation of the school.

RE is not subject to nationally prescribed purpose of study, aims, attainment targets, and assessment arrangements, but it is subject to inspection. Where schools are not using an agreed syllabus, standards will be judged in relation to the expectations set out in the RE Council’s Curriculum Framework for Religious Education in England (2013).

The North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus 2019–2024 fulfils the legal requirements set out above, and has its roots in the REC’s Framework (2013). It is written to support academies in meeting the requirements of their funding agreements. Academies are encouraged to adopt the syllabus, taking advantage of the resources and support that it offers.

A new Agreed Syllabus was introduced in September 2019. This syllabus will run until 2024.

Agape Picnic 2018

On Monday 26 March we had an Agape picnic at school which was also shared with parents, grandparents and members of the local community. It was great to have so many people join us for our Easter celebration.

We shared some prayers and bible readings before we had our picnic.

Alice said, ‘I really enjoyed the Agape picnic and the lovely food.  I lit the three candles because I am the oldest pupil in the school. The candles stand for God, Jesus and the Holy spirit.’

Nathan said, ‘I liked the picnic and blew the candles out because I am the youngest in the school.’
