Primary Academy

Welcome

Head teacher's welcome 

 

Welcome to our school website which we hope you will find informative as well as giving you a flavour of what it is like to learn at Stisted Primary Academy.

 

Our school was originally founded in 1836 to provide education within a Christian context for the children of the village and surrounding farm cottages. Today, we serve the local community and beyond for parents who wish to educate their children in a small popular thriving village school and work closely with our partner schools in Kelvedon, Finchingfield and Tollshunt D'Arcy. 

 

We are a strong advocate of small Church of England schools not only for the type of education and experience they provide, but also to how they contribute to the education system as a whole. Our core values centre on compassion, kindness, connection, belonging, hope and aspiration to create a learning ethos, we feel children thrive upon.

 

Every child and family is warmly welcomed regardless of their background, starting points or characteristics and enabled to learn effectively and take part in all aspects of school life in a meaningful way by a dedicated and caring team of staff.  

 

We have developed a very strong reputation for inclusion and our work with children with Special Education Needs whilst stretching our higher performing children and consistently achieving well above national average results for reading, writing and mathematics.

 

We have worked hard on designing a curriculum that is fit for purpose, relevant, interesting and meets the needs of our children in a post-pandemic era where many children's educational experience has been disrupted through no fault of their own.

 

 

Our curriculum is designed around 3 core aims. These are:

 

  • to help children acquire empowering personal character qualities such as respect, empathy, compassion, belonging, willingness to connect, hope, aspiration, spiritual awareness and contributors enabling them to become principled members of society who can contribute positively to the world in which they live.

 

  • to help children become resourceful, self-motivated, inquisitive, curious, analytical, evaluative, flexible, reflective, creative and resilient individuals so that become adaptable, independent and confident learners.

 

  • to give children the best all round education that helps them acquire a deep body of knowledge, cultural capital and skills they need to tackle increasingly complex tasks, make connections and thrive in a dynamic and evolving world

 

     

    The curricular experience at this school is designed to help children acquire empowering personal character qualities such as respect, spiritual awareness, empathy, compassion, belonging, connection, hope and aspiration enabling them to become principled members of society who can contribute positively to the world in which they live.

     

    We are also keen to help children become resourceful, self-motivated, inquisitive, curious, analytical, evaluative, flexible, reflective, creative and resilient individuals so that they become adaptable, independent and confident learners.

     

    And finally, we want to give children the best all round education possible that will help them acquire a deep body of knowledge, cultural capital and skills they need to tackle increasingly complex tasks, make connections and thrive in a dynamic and evolving world.
