A Bath and Wells Academy



...and Friendship

Welcome to Bishops Lydeard Church School

Bishops Lydeard Church School is a caring, inclusive primary school.

We are part of the Bath and Wells Multi-Academy Trust. We have seven single year group classes, with up to thirty children in each class. We offer a distinctly Christian learning environment, at the heart of our village community, based on the values of respect, friendship and endurance. We expect the highest standards in every aspect of school life.

We offer a stimulating, engaging, broad and balanced curriculum designed so that children of all abilities can achieve their full potential. Our school is set in a stunning location at the foot of the Quantock Hills and we take full advantage of our fantastic indoor and outdoor learning environment to enable every child to recognise their potential and develop their individual talents.

We have a team of dedicated staff who build positive relationships with our children based on mutual respect. We believe in the importance of strong home-school partnerships. Parental interest and support has a huge impact on a child’s education and we actively encourage all parents and carers to contribute wherever possible to their child’s time in school and at home.

If you would like to visit our school, please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time.

Paper copies of letters and documents that appear on this website are available from the school office.

We are committed to promoting the welfare and safeguarding of all children at Bishops Lydeard Church School and expect everyone to share this commitment.

In line with our safeguarding policy and statutory guidance we have clear procedures in school for responding to any concerns about a child’ s safety or wellbeing.
