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. We also have a fabulous MUGA (multi use games area) and a large astro turf area that the children thoroughly enjoy using. The school also run a wide variety of extra curricular clubs throughout the year. Bythams are also very fortunate to have a large gardening area complete with poly tunnels and raised beds.

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
