We are still Lythe School!

We have remained open, including though school and bank holidays, throughout this emergency for our key families.  We are now pleased to welcome back children in Nursery and Year 6. Our dedicated home learning team will be supporting families at home right up to the end of term, and plans and resources are published throughout each week on Class Dojo - please contact school if you need help accessing this. 

Please ask if you would like paper copies of learning activities sending to you, or any other resources that will help you (and don't forget to look at over 400 supporting videos on Class Dojo that our wonderful staff have made). We have driven over 250 miles so far visiting families to deliver learning resources and reading books and generally stay in touch - watch out for the minibus as we go round the area and give us a wave!

 Stay in touch with the school community by following our Facebook page, and joining our closed group "Safe at Home." We will continue to use this group for sharing positive news, showing each other what we have been up to generally, and giving advice and encouragement.  This is a very supportive group, and your contribution is very welcome.

 Please stay in touch - contact staff via Class Dojo, or ring during school hours on 893373.

Mrs Lisa Armstrong, Head Teacher



"Words can't express how lucky we feel to have ended up at Lythe. We have never met a warmer bunch of people  and have felt welcome from day one.  Our children have gone from strength to strength socially and academically."       

Lythe School Parent 


Our Vision is for everyone to flourish academically, physically and spiritually. All will live happy, fulfilled lives and, through their words and actions, become the people who bring light, hope and  positive change to the world.


“You are the salt of the earth… you are the light of the world.”  Jesus speaking in Matthew Chapter 5.


Mission Statement

Our daily work will be based on giving everyone:

a sense of belonging: a knowledge that they are safe and valued for who they are, as an individual with lots to offer. All are treated with respect and dignity.

a sense of empowerment: opportunities to take charge, take action and make a difference;  know that they can be agents of change and can make choices about their lives; high aspirations for themselves.

the knowledge that their wellbeing is important: we look after each other; we show compassion when people are having difficulties and look for ways of supporting people physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.

the support to understand their own feelings and behaviour: to help them learn to make their own good choices and treat others how they would like to be treated and be kind, safe and respectful.

a wide experience and understanding of the world, locally, nationally and globally; the chance to develop good general knowledge and learn from the past and the present; the chance to make strong links and live well with other people.

Excellent teaching and training led by professionals  with high aspirations and expectations for learners so that all achieve well and fulfil their potential, and are well-informed and skilled enough to challenge the status quo.

an understanding of the importance of attending school well

the confidence to take risks, and to be unafraid to try and fail; to persevere; to make courageous decisions and ask difficult questions.

encouragement to develop their personal system of ethics, values and beliefs; an enquiring and open environment for spiritual development;  coherent and relevant understanding of Christianity and the ability to live well together with people of all faiths and none.

wide opportunities to discover things they like and are good at; encouragement to pursue these.
