Mid-Year Admissions

Children may join the appropriate year group at any time of the year subject to space being available.  As an Academy Trust, Stoke by Nayland C of E Primary School is an Own Admission Authority, with authority delegated from the MAT to manage all 'mid-year' applications, that is all applications for admission outside of the 'normal admissions round', outlined above. Applications for 'mid-year admissions' are made directly to Stoke by Nayland C of E Primary School. Please complete the Form ADM1, which can be accessed and downloaded by clicking the link below and return it directly to the School Office. The telephone number and email address are noted below should you require further information.

It is always best to ring the school for the most up to date information about spaces in different year groups.  Owing to the way we organise our classes we are often able to take over our PAN (Pupil Admission Number) without making our classes too large.  If you need further information or help with admissions, please do contact us on 01206 262418 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
