Have a lovely summer - back to school Tuesday 5th September

"The headteacher, current governors and dedicated staff have determinedly made many changes that are rapidly improving the school."     Ofsted 2017

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.
