Welcome to The Bythams Primary School

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Bythams Primary School website!

As you explore the site you will see that at Bythams Primary School the children are always immersed in exciting, challenging and creative learning opportunities.

I feel that I am extremely lucky to work with such a dedicated, hard working and caring team of staff and governors who are totally committed to ensuring that each child reaches their full potential in a happy and safe environment.

We are working hard to provide an environment where the children are immersed in lots of practical activities in order to give their learning  real meaning. We hope that this will enrich children’s learning and they will have fun achieving their potential.

As part of our creative curriculum we have the exciting opportunities for children to explore learning through the forest school. We are able to access the Spinney at Little Bytham for longer forest school sessions, particularly with older children.

On the school grounds we are also lucky enough to access the Mini Spinney for our forest school activities. After a successful bid for funding we now have a raft of quality resources for children to use during these forest school sessions. Please have a look at the class pages to see the many activities the children do each term. There is a leaflet with more information on forest schools downloadable in the Forest School section of the website.

At Bythams we are very lucky to have beautiful, spacious school grounds with plenty of play equipment for children to enjoy. The children love sport and we have bought lots of new equipment and we are going to try a variety of sports from Tennis to Zumba. If you want a break from sport, we have excellent after school clubs such as media, KS1 fun club and cooking with Mrs Lovesey.

Our school has a warm, positive ethos which is constantly commented on by visitors and we would be delighted to welcome you should you wish to visit the school. Please contact us using the details below.

I hope you enjoy our website which is regularly updated, so please keep returning to our site to view all of the exciting work that will be displayed in our class pages!

We have also put together some really useful websites that you can use to support your learning.  Please take some time to explore these sites which can be found under the classes link, useful websites. Many thanks for your time.

Kind regards

Richard Clarke

Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles

One of our pupils is receiving treatment for cancer. They are at serious risk if exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. The best way to protect a pupil from measles is for all pupils to be immunised against measles. Please discuss measles immunisation with your GP if your child is not already vaccinated.

If you suspect your child has measles or chicken pox you should let the school know immediately. Our pupil would need to be given an injection within three days of contact. It is also very important that you let us know if anyone in your household has shingles. More information can be found in our letter to parents.
