Please call the school office on 893373 to book a place at the next meeting.

What's On At Lythe School

We are keen learners who want to find out more! English and Maths don't seem like work when we use them to help discover new things in all our subjects, in and out of the classroom. Our teachers certainly challenge us!

Our Vision Statement

We provide the highest quality of education for every individual in a nurturing, creative, Christian environment where children combine academic excellence with a passion for learning about the world.

What does this look like at Lythe CEVC School?

  • Children love and value learning and build on their own successes to be the best they can be.
  • Staff are inspirational and are committed to excellent teaching and making outstanding progress.
  • Children, staff, parents and carers work together to promote the highest academic and personal standards and attitudes.
  • Children are motivated and enthused by a broad, balanced, creative, inclusive curriculum which values the arts, sport and outdoor learning and makes full use of all opportunities in and out of school.
  • Children develop their own reasoned set of attitudes, beliefs and values to prepare them for the future roles in life.
  • All children are of equal worth and show tolerance and respect, and understand the importance of supporting and caring for each other.
  • Children’s experiences prepare them to tackle the future with confidence, resilience, ambition and broad horizons. 
  • Parents and carers are engaged and happy.
  • Children have happy memories of their time at school.

 We are pleased to be an Associate Member of the Esk Valley Alliance - this lets us draw upon the recognised expertise and outstanding practice of middle and senior leaders across the Alliance including Specialist, Local and National Leaders of Education.


  Good Attendance

Good attendance remains a huge priority for us and we really value your efforts in ensuring that your child is in school and ready to learn. At the end of the spring term, attendance is 95.8%, compared with 92.8% at the same time last year: thank you for your support in improving this. We are now striving to reach our target of 96% attendance for the year - nearly there!

If there is anything at all we can do to support you with attendance, please contact Mrs Armstrong straight away.

2019 Nursery & Reception Places Available 

We have places available for 3 and 4 year olds in our beautiful, purpose-built Nursery & Reception class  which has been rated as "Good" by Ofsted. Our unique location lets us offer highly individualised provision; we benefit hugely from our excellent Forest Schools curriculum using the beautiful Mulgrave Woods, and our school minibus means that we can regularly venture further afield to coast and moorland. 100% of Reception children achieved a Good Level of Development in 2018. 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 Taylor, to arrange a visit to see what we can offer your child.
