School profile

Mangotsfield Church of England Primary School

Mangotsfield CE Primary is part of the thirteen Leaf Trust family of schools in South Gloucestershire. We are 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.

We are a three form entry school with 21 classes and a very experienced and friendly teaching team. We are happy to offer experience to someone who wishes to explore teaching as a possible career or wishes to get experience before submitting their application for teacher training.

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.
