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

Welcome to Bailey, the latest member of our team! Bailey is 10 months old and passed all his assessments to become our school support dog. This term he has been getting used to the school environment, but will officially start work in January.


We had a musician from the Roman River Festival Orchestra come into school. She played her cello and taught us how to conduct music. Year 5 and 6 then went to listen to a full orchestra rehearsal at the church. What a wonderful sound they made and brought the music to life!

Our year 5/6 took part in The Suffolk Primary Schools Football Tournament.
