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.

Don't forget the Halloween Disco on Thursday 20th October at 5:00pm-6:30pm. Please drop children off at the main Reception doors so that we can sign them in. Friends of Lythe have also organised free facepainting, and there are raffle tickets for grown-ups to buy when you drop children off - come an join in for a chance to win chocolate and wine!

Dear parents/carers and friends of Lythe School

We would like to introduce ourselves as the Governing Body of Lythe CE School and give you some information about who we are and what we do. Please see the 'Current Governors' section for full details.

The Governors work in partnership with the headteacher to oversee the strategic develpoment of the school and to help shape the visiion and direction of the school. We strive to have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school and to challenge and support its senior mangement. The Governing Body also ensures that the school fulfills its statutory duties, including promoting inclusive policies in relation to special educational needs, race equality, disability and gender.

The full Governing Body meets at least five times a year - once in the autumn term, once (or more) in spring term and twice in the summer term. The dates for the current academic year (2016/17) are as follows:

  • Wednesday 12th October 2016
  • Wednesday 18th January 2017 (Informal meeting)
  • Wednesday 29th March 2017
  • Wednesday 17th May 2017
  • Wednesday 12th July 2017

There is also a Finance & Staffing committee which meets at least once a term. In addition, we have two 'groups' who deal with the following areas in more detail:

  • Curriculum & Standards
  • Spiritual Foundations

There are other committees which only function on an ad hoc basis. These include the Complaints Committee and the Disciplinary Committee. Information about the formal complaints procedure is available on the schools website together with details of all other Lythe school policies.

Individual governors have been been elected to the following roles for 2016/17:

Co-Chairs of Governors: Mrs Claudia Unger-Bloor and Mrs Jo Stonehouse

Vice-Chair of Governors: Mrs Dawn Bugby


The following governors have taken on the role of Link Governor for 2016/17:

Child Protection – Mrs K Cornforth

SEN – Mrs D Bugby

Pupil Premium – Mrs C Unger-Bloor

E-Safety – Mrs S Arnold

Health and Safety – Mr A Wood

Limits to the authority of the governors:

  • no individual governor has authority to make decisions alone. Decisions are made collectively by the whole governing body
  • the governing body delegates management of the school to the Head Teacher


The governors of Lythe School are always open to communication with parents and we welcome the input of parents so that we can all work together for the good of all the children of Lythe school.


Become a Governor

If you are interested in serving as a school governor, please make this known to either the head teacher, the chair of governors or any member of the governing body. We have two elected parent governor places and five co-opted governor places which are open to anyone in the community with the right skill set and an interest in the school. A governor term of office lasts four years and a governor can be re-elected. Normally there will be changes in governors each year. So please let us know if you are interested.

Contacting the Governors

The Co-Chairs of Governors, Mrs Claudia Unger-Bloor and Mrs Jo Stonehouse, can be contacted through the School Office on 01947 893373, via e-mail to or via our website here. You can find a full list of governors in the 'Current Governors' section.
