Welcome from the Head Teacher

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

We are a small, friendly, highly inclusive village primary school with caring and committed staff who work closely with families and the community, nurture individuals and inspire children to be the best they can be. Our aim is that children will develop a love of learning, combining the pursuit of academic success with a passion for finding out about the world. Children will leave school fully prepared to tackle the future with confidence, ambition, broad horizons, and, above all, happy memories of their time at Lythe. Our school reflects British Values in all that we do. All children are of equal worth, and therefore tolerance, respect and a readiness to support and care for each other in school and in the world at large are essential.

All our children will be given the opportunity to develop their own reasoned set of attitudes, beliefs and values to prepare them for their future roles in society.

Everyone in the school community will ensure that our school is… a peaceful place to…learn, pray, care, laugh, talk, think, play and grow together. "For you know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

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.








Here are some of our frequently-used policies. You will need PDF Reader to view these documents, if you do not have it please download from here. All policies are available in hard copy from the office on request.


Our Social Media Statement

Parents of children in North Yorkshire schools are increasingly using social networking sites such as Facebook to talk to their friends. Sometimes parents have used these sites to make inappropriate comments about schools or even individual teachers.

Making defamatory comments on the internet has exactly the same serious legal consequences as if they are made directly to someone else. Legal action could be taken against the person who has made the online comment. Similarly threats of violence can lead to criminal proceedings under the Malicious Communications Act 1988.

If you have any concerns about anything which happens in school please speak to your child’s class teacher or the Headteacher who will do their best to resolve things.

If you are still unhappy we have a complaints procedure which will ensure that your concerns are investigated thoroughly and appropriate action taken.
