If you think that you would like your child to attend Lythe School we would be delighted to meet you. You are very welcome indeed to come and visit the school and meet the staff and children and see us in action, and we will be pleased to answer any questions. Please call Mrs Welford in the office on 893373 to make an appointment. If you would like a general chat about the school, please call Mr John Stansfield or Miss Zoe Taylor for any Nursery or Reception enquiries, or Mrs Lisa Armstrong for any other matters.

North Yorkshire County Council is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled primary and secondary schools in this area, and as such has determined the admission arrangements for the 2018-2019 school year. Please click here for their full admission policy and procedures, including oversubscription criteria.


The North Yorkshire Fair Access Protocol shows how children who may have difficulty securing a school place will be treated.


Nursery (Foundation Stage 1)

Children may be admitted to Nursery during the term following their third birthday. Parents are invited to place their name on our waiting list, and visits are warmly welcomed. Our Nursery Admissions Policy shows the order of priority for admissions.

Reception (Foundation Stage 2)

All children enter Reception class in September. To apply for a place you need to complete a Common Application Form and submit this to North Yorkshire County Council, even if your child is already in Nursery at Lythe School. Please contact Mrs Welford or Mr Stansfield if you would like support with this.  There is information here and here about deferring entry to Reception. 

The primary school application round will open no later than 22 September 2018 and the deadline to apply is 15 January 2019


In-Year Admissions

We welcome enquiries from new families at any time during your child's school career. If you would like to apply for a place, full details of the process and an electronic application form are available on the School Admissions page of the North Yorkshire County Council website. Please contact Mrs Welford if you would like support with this.
