New Headteacher for Magna Carta Primary

New Headteacher for Magna Carta Primary

Posted: 8th May 2018

The new headteacher of Magna Carta Primary Academy is building a rich future for his pupils.

Marios Solomonides arrived as headteacher of the school  on April 16, having previously been head at fellow BMAT school Freshwaters Primary Academy in Harlow.

He has spent the last 18 months researching and creating a bespoke curriculum for the Trust’s Harlow schools. He will use that experience to put together a knowledge-rich curriculum for the children of Magna Carta to ensure they are ready for life beyond school.

As well as ensuring lessons are suited to the children’s needs, Mr Solomonides is also looking to expand their interaction with the community, with a focus on charity and business.

He said: “I am keen to make links with other local primary schools, so we can hold joint events and our staff can moderate together and share CPD sessions. We already work with our fellow primary schools within BMAT in Harlow, but the communities are very different and so it makes sense to build links with our local schools.

“We are starting from scratch with the curriculum here as Magna Carta is a new school. That is very exciting. As part of that, I have joined the Stansted Business Forum to begin building links with local professionals who can help to inspire our children to strive for various careers. It will help children to see there is a purpose to what they are learning. Of course, we want our curriculum to be aspirational, however, another focus for us will be personal, social and moral development of our pupils.

“By working with the community and charities, the children will feel they are contributing, but it will also give the community opportunities to come in and be a part of us.”

On day one, Mr Solomonides introduced three new rules – be safe, be kind and work hard – and the curriculum will be used to teach children in these areas.

Of his new school, Mr Solomonides, who will be joined by deputy headteacher Teresa Avey in June, said: “The children at Magna Carta are lovely and the parents are very interested in their learning and are keen to get involved. That’s exactly how we would want things to be.

“I’m very excited to be leading Magna Carta.”
