Welcome to Lythe School

We believe in nurturing and celebrating each child as an individual, with a sound education and joy in living life in all its fullness  - please call Mrs Welford in the office on 01947 893373 to make an appointment to come and see us at work and play.


Mrs Lisa Armstrong, Head Teacher




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.

2020 Nursery & Reception Places Available 

We have places available for 3 and 4 year olds in our beautiful, purpose-built Nursery & Reception class. Our unique location lets us offer highly individualised provision; all benefit hugely from child-led learning in our excellent Forest Schools curriculum using the beautiful Mulgrave Woods, and our school minibus means that we can regularly venture further afield to coast, moorland and town facilities.  We offer flexible provision to include mornings, afternoons and lunchtimes; we also have high-quality wraparound care at our Seashells Club (see below).
Please contact our friendly and approachable EYFS teachers, Mr Stansfield or Miss Jackson, to arrange a visit to see what we can offer your child.
