Magna Carta Primary Opens

On Monday 12th September the brand new primary in Stansted Mountfitchet, the Magna Carta Primary Academy, opened. Pupils and parents had previously visited the school for welcome days but this was now the first day of school. As parents dropped off their children, all looking very smart in their new uniforms, it was clearly emotional for some as they left their children.

There was a surprise in store for children as they arrived, in the form of new school dog, Lola. Owned by headteacher, Mrs Dias. Lola will be on site for children to play with during break times.

Breakfast and after school clubs are already running for children who’d like to spend more time at the school, and to help parents who may have to drop of children earlier or pick them up later.

Speaking about the first day, Mrs Dias has said - 'The children have had a great start and it’s brilliant to see they have all settled so quickly! Our school puppy 'Lola' is a great addition to the school and the children look forward to seeing her every day!'
