Welcome to Mangotsfield C of E Primary School
Welcome to our Fantastic school community!
It is with great pride that I welcome you to Mangotsfield Church of England Primary School, a warm and loving school family living in all its fullness, learning and thriving in an environment that values the individual with shared high ambition for all.
Our aims for our community are best summarised by our motto, 'We are the Movers and Shapers of Our Future’. We want our learners to learn great things, across all areas of the curriculum, so that they may go on to achieve great things. Reading sits at the heart of our curriculum, with books being used to inspire, inform and transport our learners beyond the walls of our school so that they may learn more about history, culture, science and exploration whilst discovering a true passion for books and reading for pleasure.
As a Church of England school, Mangotsfield is dedicated to a foundation of core Christian values which are reflected in our whole school BRAVE values: Belonging, Resilience, Aspiration, Virtue and Empathy. These values underpin the way we live and learn together. We consider our team to be our school family and, as such, explicitly teach and model belonging and virtue to ensure that all are welcomed, enabled to contribute and safe and happy in the company of others. The encouragement of key learning behaviours such as resilience and aspiration prepare our learners to be independent, successful citizens. We pride ourselves on having an inclusive community in which our value of empathy is upheld to secure understanding and respect for others.
We nurture a love of learning and encourage our young people to make a positive difference by developing the knowledge, skills and values needed to engage with the world now and into the future. We believe in leadership at all levels and there are plentiful opportunities for our learners to develop their leadership skills as they move through the school. Our school councillors share the voice of our learners, house captains motivate their teams to succeed and worship acolytes reflect and voice change.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that it will give you a taste of our school and why we are so proud of our community.
In October 2023, Mangotsfield Church of England Primary School became part of The Leaf Multi-Academy Trust; a new family of 13 primary schools. This means that the school is now an Academy, funded directly by the Department of Education instead of South Gloucestershire Local Authority. The school continues to keep its own unique identity and will continue to work closely with the other maintained schools locally. However, in addition to this, we now have a special strategic relationship with the other schools in The Leaf Trust to help strengthen our successful community still further.
