Community

At Valley Invicta Primary School at Leybourne Chase, we take pride in working with our local community.  We hope the information below will tell you a little bit more about just some of the projects we have been involved in.

Lavenders Residential Care Home, West Malling

Panda Class (Reception) have visited Lavenders on a regular basis to see the residents and to take part in art and music activities.

Aldi

Our school is signed up to the Neighbourly Project, which donates supplies and fresh food, and allows us to then pass these on to the local community.

Leybourne Chase Parent and Toddler Group

Every Monday, the school opens the hall to the local parent and toddler group for a coffee and play morning.

Leybourne Chase Community Centre

We work closely with the Community Liaison Officer from the Community Centre to promote the school, our events and campaigns, and also to share resources, and discuss local issues. The centre will be displaying some of our artwork in the coming weeks.

Leybourne Grange Riding School

We hold our annual Christmas carol service at this riding school and raise money for them. We also take our Key Stage 2 children horse riding and promote the centre with parents. 

Heart of Kent Hospice

We are taking part in the Elmer Project run by the Heart of Kent Hospice, which involves raising money for the charity through school fundraising events including Elephant Day!  Our children also sing at the Christmas lights switch on in West Malling, which is in aid of this charity.

The Pilsdon Community, West Malling

Our Harvest Festival donations are given to this charity, which helps people in crisis to re-build their lives.

Leybourne Church

The church holds a carol service every year, involving our school choir.  They also use our school facilities for a variety of charity fundraising events, such as an evening fashion show. 

Headstart

We are one of nine Headstart primary schools in Tonbridge and Malling, and received an award from them for wellbeing and emotional resilience.  We were also given money from the organisation towards creating safe spaces within our schools and we have been able to participate in community 'Pay It Forward' projects which will be funding our sensory garden and helping us to work with other community projects, including one which is underway with Leybourne Grange.  

Salvation Army

We have started an annual project to help the Salvation Army's Christmas Present Appeal which provides gifts for those in need over Christmas.  This project is in conjunction with Valley Park School.

Tom Tugendhat MP

We have campaigned for projects within the local community such as road safety, traffic reduction and cleaner air and we have had Tom Tugendhat to visit and see first-hand the issues we are facing. 

NHS England Conference

We took part in a multi-agency conference which was attended by a multitude of professionals, where a group of our children spoke confidently about Student Voice. 

Mayor Visit

We often invite the Mayor to visit us and also our children take part in the mayoral debates at the official chambers in Kings Hill. This is a great experience for our older pupils to develop their spoken English.

Local PCSO

We work closely with the local PCSO to talk about safety in the community.

Taylor Wimpey 

Taylor Wimpey has sponsored our sport kits which are worn proudly across all the VIAT primary schools during sporting competitions.  They have also sent representatives to talk to the children about safety on building sites as the Leybourne Chase development moves forward.

Leybourne Football Club

The club's annual prize giving ceremony is held at our school and several of our children attend the club itself. 

Pippin's Nursery

We invite the nursery to come and watch our nativity play at Christmas and also invite them to attend taster mornings throughout the year.

Leybourne Pre-School

We visit the pre-school regularly and invite them to visit the school. We also will be working with them more closely to help them understand the expectations for school readiness.

Spadeworks

We continue to support this charity with events and they will be helping us create our sensory garden this year.
