Welcome to our School

Hello and welcome to our school!                           

From the friendly hello and welcome you receive when you walk into our school entrance as well as meeting the smiling families you see on our school grounds collecting their children after school or clubs, as soon as you walk through our gates you will feel part of our community.  Welcome to Magna Carta Primary Academy.

Our vision is to create a school community where everyone feels valued, can explore, develop their strengths, and participate in new experiences. Our aim is to be an inspirational school moulding and developing good people in an atmosphere that promotes confidence, high academic achievement, physical health, and emotional well-being.

We believe education is a partnership between the school, the child, and their family. Magna Carta is a small but proud, modern, well-resourced school in stunning grounds, which include a multi-use games area (MUGA), a sports field, daily mile track, nature area, quiet zone and adventure playground. 

Our pupils make outstanding progress academically, physically, and socially, consistently achieve above national averages. At Magna Carta we focus on deep learning, core learning and teaching to the top. We believe in the whole child and growing together.

I am very proud to be the Head of School in such a friendly, caring environment where our staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website and visiting us in person.

Ms Jennifer Pearce

BMAT MC 086 halfsize

We are situated 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.
