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

Performance Tables

Test and Teacher Assessment Results 2017


At the end of year 6, before leaving for secondary school, children take statutory tests in Reading, Maths and SPAG (grammar, punctuation and spelling) Children will receive a score based on these one-off, timed tests aiming to meet the National Standards. These figures are expressed as percentages of the year group (cohort)

Teacher Assessments

In addition, teachers monitor and assess progress and attainment throughout the year and collect evidence to show the level children are able to work at and whether they meet the National Standards. 

Raw percentages can sometimes be a little misleading as in a small school the cohort may be as small as 6 children, meaning each child is a large percentage in statistical terms.

There were 10 children in the 2017 cohort. Each child therefore represents 10%.

30% of the cohort (3/10) had Special Educational Needs.
