School Stansted is a small primary school sited in an idyllic rural location in North Kent. We are a family orientated school, with a caring Christian ethos. Our long-established values and personalised approach to learning ensure that our children achieve well.

Learning

Our Mission Statement outlines our principles to engage and empower pupils so they can make a positive contribution to the world. We expect all pupils to make regular and consistent progress with their learning: academic, social, spiritual, physical, creative and emotional. Our curriculum is delivered creatively, yet there is also a strong emphasis to develop both core skills and the personal resourcefulness that we believe all pupils will need to continue with life-long learning. Through planning and assessment we engage all year groups fully and set high standards for pupils. Parental involvement is essential to this process and therefore regular contact with parents is promoted in our school.

Caring Community

Our pupils thrive in our small community, integrate quickly, and continue to gain from the benefits of a secure and stable learning environment. Stansted has a strong school community and all of its members have a commitment to their role in supporting the school’s development. This team includes teachers, teaching assistants, admin officer, mid-day meal supervisors, cooks, parents and Governors.

Our school prayer, motto and logo strongly reflect and drive our Christian values in daily life. Our motto ”Learners today, Leaders tomorrow” emphasises the belief that we aim for all children to find joy in the process of learning, to celebrate their own skills and talents and those of others, and be confident to use those skills in their futures. Finally our logo, the Stansted man embracing the world supports our aim to engage and empower our pupils to make a positive contribution to God’s world.

Central to our school community are the 5 Stansted Standards, referred to in school as the 5 S’. These are: Superior, Sensational, Strong, Studious and Sensible Choices.  We believe our children deserve the best and we actively encourage independence and interdependence to ensure our children fulfill their potential.
