SSIN families show such
kindness to those in need!
Covid has had a huge financial impact upon many families,
both across our partnership and our wider community.
That said, the generosity of South Stanley Infant &
Nursery School remains outstanding.
Back in September, SSIN ran their annual Macmillan
coffee morning. Always a great event in their calendar,
this year’s was held virtually. Donations were made in
advance and everyone joined together online (once the
technical glitches were ironed out) to enjoy a cuppa and
form if your child is moving up to South Stanley Junior
School from South Stanley Infant & Nursery School.
Applications close at midnight on 15th January 2021 with
parents being notified on 16th April 2021. We should
note, places are allocated by Durham County Council
School Places & Admissions Team; unfortunately, your
school of choice is not involved in the decision-making
If you need any help or support completing your
