Mangotsfield Primary School

EYFS Sept 2024 Intake

Welcome to Mangotsfield! We are so excited to begin the process of welcoming our 2024 youngest learners to our school. Over the coming months, you will receive regular communication from us with all of the information needed to complete the transition and induction process. We know this is an important step for your little ones, and for you as families, so we hope the transition process will provide the information and reassurance needed.

We invite parents of learners starting school at Mango in September 2024 to an Information Meeting. This will be held on Thursday 20th June from 6.00 - 7.30pm.

Following this meeting, there will be a series of Stay and Play sessions during which your child will get to spend time in the outdoor area on their first visit, new classroom with their teacher and some of their classmates on their second and third visit. Ideally you can attend all three sessions, but we understand that families have busy lives so you can just come to some of them. Each of these sessions will be run in Group A and Group B sessions.  We will let you know whether your child is in Group A or Group B shortly.  This is to allow us to spend time with the children in smaller groups and to enable the children to visit in a smaller group too.  

Stay and Play Sessions

Friday 28th June (morning) - timings to be confirmed

Wednesday 3rd July (morning) - timings to be confirmed

Friday 12th July (afternoon). During this session, parents will remain in the hall for tea and coffee while your children explore their new setting independently. We do ask that all parents remain on site for the duration of the session please.

In September we have an inset day on Monday 2nd September – school will be closed to all children.  Children will start school for half day sessions on Tuesday 3rd September and you will receive an email with timings of induction for this week of school.

We will invite one adult per child to attend our first ever lunch on Friday 6th September. The timings of this will be confirmed.

All children will start full time on Monday 9th September, unless both yourselves and the staff feel that your child needs a longer transition period. 

We will confirm timings for first stay and play session at the evening meeting on 20th June.  We will confirm all other timings for stay and play sessions, September half day sessions and lunches on 6th September  before the second stay and play session on 3rd July.

If you have any queries, please contact the school office and a member of our team will be happy to help. We are very much looking forward to meeting you all in person over the coming weeks and getting to know your little ones!
