Leybourne Chase Ofsted - Good!

Valley Invicta Primary School at Leybourne Chase has retained its Good grading following an Ofsted ungraded (Section 8) inspection on 21 and 22 February, this year.

The Trust is also very pleased to say that the inspector felt that the evidence gathered suggested that the grade might be Outstanding if a graded (Section 5) inspection was carried out now. This means that Ofsted will return to the school within the next 13 months to carry out a graded (Section 5) inspection.

Huge congratulations to everyone at Leybourne Chase for their hard work and tireless efforts which resulted in this very positive outcome.

The report stated:

‘Pupils feel very safe in school and are well looked after by kind and caring adults. Pupils know that staff listen to them if they have any worries or concerns. Children in Reception settle exceptionally well and learn the routines of the school very quickly. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school.’

‘Pupils are very polite and incredibly respectful of each other and adults. Pupils understand, respect and appreciate difference.’
