At Green Hammerton CofE Primary School we aim to provide a curriculum that embraces independence, enquiry, thinking and creativity. This is underpinned by a focus on essential skills for developing powerful, independent learners. When children leave Green Hammerton CofE Primary School at the end of Year 6, they should be equipped with the full range of skills that enables them to become lifelong learners. As a Church school our Christian ethos and values are at the heart of everything that we do. We have a commitment to teaching abut global citizenship and courageous advocacy, ensuring that children are empowered to treat all people with dignity and respect.



At Green Hammerton CE Primary School we aim to provide the children with a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn.

It focuses on Personal Effectiveness, Interpersonal and social effectiveness and Managing risk and decision making. We aim to equip pupils to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives.

Studies are supported by first hand experiences such as visiting our village Church and visits to other places of worship to widen pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the wider world. The teaching of Religious Education is statutory in all schools. It is taught following the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education.
