September 2021 Prospective New Intake Information

We are delighted to offer prospective parents the opportunity to join us for a tour of the school.  Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, tours are strictly limited to a maximum of four adults.  A maximum of two adults per child will be able to visit the school and I am afraid that we are unable to accommodate children on our tours this year.  

Tours will be running throughout November.  Please call the school office on 01732 842008 to book your place.  Social distancing, and other preventative measures, including the collection of visitors’ contact details and the wearing of facemasks, will be necessary and we thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

If a potential visitor to the school or a member of their household displays any symptoms of COVID-19, or if they have been told by the Track and Trace Service that they need to self isolate, they must not enter the school, thank you.

Welcome to Leybourne SS Peter & Paul CEP Academy

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. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information about any aspect of life here at Leybourne, or to arrange a visit to see us in action. I look forward to seeing you!

Kind regards
