Welcome to The Bythams Primary School

The Bythams SchoolAs 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.

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!

Kind regards

Green-Fingered Bythams Gardening Team

I would like to say an absolutely massive thank you to The Award Winning Rachael Barratt and her tremendous team of Superb Volunteer gardeners for transforming the school garden (as well as planting some more fruit trees). Rachael very kindly organised the help as during Covid-19, the garden was looking a little tired and in need of some TLC. The TLC was very kindly provided by Maris Hodge, Pete and Fiona Holland, Martin Aherne, Jo Haywood, Claire Clarke, Paul and Sarah Murden. The next jobs are to repairing the poly tunnel and bedding nets. Thank you all so much as the school is so lucky to have such a fantastic resource for the children of Bythams. Keep gardening!

5 ways to well being activity 

Dear Parents

I hope you are all safe and well. I know that you will all agree that providing support for positive mental wellbeing for children and school communities is so important right now. The project was really taking shape in school and having a positive impact with all involved. Attached is some background information from Mindspace about the school 5 ways to wellbeing project  and a weekly activity for families to have a go at and have some fun.

Please read the document below and have a go at the activity (there will be a new activity on the website every week under latest news). When you have a go at this task, I would love to see the outcomes and any comments about how you as a family completed any or all of the 5 ways to wellbeing – so please email me with your results.

Please take care, stay safe and be kind to yourself.

Best wishes
Richard Clarke
