It’s really important to teach children about the environment and and what they can do to look after it. Check out our booklists, get involved with the arts and crafts or have a go at making some tasty vegan recipes all on our website: https://t.co/zjNZ2snUGS https://t.co/bqSWCtDtCX

G. K. Chesterton

It has been the great tragedy of our time that people were taught to read and not taught to reason.

Welcome to our School

Welcome to Magna Carta Primary Academy in the historic village of Stansted Mountfitchet. Our name is important to us. Since the Magna Carta was signed in Runnymede in 1215, it has had an impact on political systems all over the world. Magna Carta stands for equity and equality. It stands for rights and responsibilities; a great deal to live up to. We live up to it through our curriculum. Everything we teach- whether formally or informally; and everything we say to a pupil or a parent or a member of staff, forms our curriculum. 

Our curriculum is rich in knowledge and promotes deep learning. We work closely with curriculum directors across BMAT to make big decisions about what we teach and what we do not teach. This is because learning is very different to teaching. If a teacher teaches a unit of work on the Tudors, it cannot be assumed that his/her pupils will learn anything beyond the superficial. However, if a teacher builds new learning onto prior learning, and gives pupils the time and space to practise using their knowledge, there is more chance that those pupils will actually remember it for life. This is only possible if we teach core knowledge in depth. Learning is where there has been a change in long term memory. If there is no change in long term memory, there is no learning. 

Our curriculum is driven by the following:

1. A knowledge of the world;

2. Enterprise and aspiration;

3. Investigation and enquiry;

4. A local, national and global perspective. 

Please read more about our curriculum on the curriculum pages of our website. 

Any enquiries can be made to reception@magnacartaacademy.org
