Welcome to Our School

Welcome to the website of Stoke by Nayland Church of England Primary School and Nursery, part of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust.  We are a small yet thriving school in the heart of idyllic Constable Country.

At Stoke by Nayland, we combine a Christian ethos with ambitious academic expectations to provide an inclusive, nurturing and stimulating school environment for all of our children.  Our core values of Courage, Creativity, Compassion and Curiosity exemplify what Stoke by Nayland Primary School stands for.

We take a holistic approach to develop each child academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually and each child is valued for their unique attributes. Children feel a sense of belonging as they become part of the Stoke by Nayland school family and are supported to become 'the best that they can be'.

Whether you are already a member of our school community, a prospective parent or an interested visitor, we hope that you find our website informative.  Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any further information, and if you have not done so already, we invite you to come and see for yourself why Stoke by Nayland Primary School is such a special place.
