Governor Vacancies

We are currently looking for governors, including a Chair, to join our school Local Governing Body. Our governors come from a range of backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best education and outcomes for the children in our school.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who is:

  • Interested in children’s education and the performance of the school
  • Has spare time and energy for the role
  • Is able to work well as part of a team
  • Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues which affect the school
  • Considers matters objectively and makes informed judgements

We are also looking to appoint a Chair of Governors who embodies these qualities and is able to

  • Lead the Governing Body by giving clear direction in effective governance
  • Help build an effective and collaborative team of governors
  • Work in partnership with the Headteacher to promote and maintain high standards of educational achievement

Thank you for visiting our website, we hope you will find us to be open and welcoming, and we look forward to working with you.

Underpinning all we do and achieve at Leybourne Ss Peter & Paul CEP Academy are our identified Core Christian Values, of Love, Trust, Compassion and Respect.  These values are integral to the way in which we operate as a school and form the basis of our relationships with staff, pupils, parents, governors and the wider community.  Clear links are made between our behaviour as individuals and as a school with the teachings of the Bible.  We enjoy close links with the parish Church of Ss Peter and Paul, and greatly value the time and support Fr Matthew gives us.

At Leybourne, we are fortunate to have  wonderful pupils, dedicated and highly skilled staff, committed governors and supportive parents, all working together to provide an outstanding education for all. The school site is spacious and well resourced, and we have excellent links with the local community.

Our focus on the “Leybourne Learners” learning behaviours of motivation, innovation, perseverance, collaboration and resilience ensure that all pupils are supported, encouraged and challenged to achieve their full potential, regardless of their ability. We are an inclusive school and celebrate the achievements and progress of all. Our pupils benefit from a wide and varied curriculum, with many opportunities for extracurricular activities in a host of areas, including music, sport and the arts.

We hope our website will be both informative and interesting, giving you an insight into life at Leybourne, and providing you with the information you need, both to inform your choice of a school if you are a prospective parent and also to enable you to support your child fully if they already attend our school.

Dear God

Please give us the heart to welcome new teachers and children into our school.

May we have the courage to say sorry to the people we have upset and the strength to admit when we are wrong.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn and guiding our wonderful teachers.

Please help us to respect the school equipment and remember the five ‘Leybourne Learners’ at all times.

Thank you for making our school safe and a fun place to be.
