Welcome to Lythe CEVC School


On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Lythe Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) School.


Our Vision Statement

Our vision is to provide the highest quality of education for all in a nurturing, creative, Christian environment, where children are empowered to 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.

If you would like to visit the school, talk to your child’s teacher or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to telephone the school on 01947 893373 or email us using the contact page.

Lisa Armstrong, Head Teacher.

 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.

Attenders of the Week: 15th June

Class 3 again! Well done.

Good attendance is essential if your child is to fulfill their potential, and attendance falling below 96% will trigger concern for us.  If there is anything at all we can do to help you with attendance, please contact your child's teacher or Mrs Armstrong as soon as possible.
