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

Debbie Shepherd
