Welcome to Our School

Welcome to the website of Stoke by Nayland Church of England Primary School, a successful, popular and thriving school in the heart of Constable Country.

Building on our Christian foundation and in partnership with governors, parents and pupils, we aim to provide a secure and creative environment where individuals are valued, nurtured and enabled to aspire to excellence in its broadest sense. Every child is supported in the challenge to be 'the best that they can be'.

Our ethos is based upon family values where children are known by us all and encouraged to be kind, considerate and look after each other-particularly older children caring for those who are younger.

On behalf of the staff and governors, I'd like to open our school doors to you & encourage you to come and visit our village school.

- Mrs Jane Le Grice, Headteacher

Key Stages

Stoke by Nayland Primary School Key Stages Explained 

It can sometimes be confusing to work out exactly which stage of primary schooling your child is in.  The guide on the left should explain this.

Currently Statutory Assessments Tests (SATS) take place towards the end of Year 2 (KS1) and Year 6 (KS2).

In addition to this there are optional annual assessments that we use along with our own, on going assessments to create a picture of what your child can do, and most importantly, what the next steps should be for them.

We continually monitor progress in the key areas so that we can plan work that best suits the children.

There are also some assessments at the end of the EYFS usually made by observations and talking to the children.
