Our School App Stay connected on the go...
At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford, we take pride in working with our local community. Click on the titles below to find out more about all the projects we have been involved in.
HRH Queen Elizabeth II
On 6 November 2019, all of our pupils had the opportunity to see Her Majesty The Queen when she visited The Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) in Aylesford.
The village provides housing, welfare support and care to more than 300 people with connections to the Armed Forces.
The Queen opened the new Appleton Lodge care facility and visited the Centenary Village housing project. She also placed soil into a hole containing a time capsule, which is not to be opened for 100 years.
Over 20 parent volunteers and 30 staff accompanied the children, from Reception to Year 6 to this once in a lifetime opportunity. They even managed to see Her Majesty the Queen being taken to her helicopter, and taking off, once her visit was complete.
This brilliant scheme sees supermarkets work with local organisations such as schools, charities and care homes to give away their unsold fresh food so it doesn't go to waste.
Our school receives regular donations from Aldi and M&S Food which we use for breakfast, school lunch and extra snacks for pupils.
We have also packaged some of the food into parcels to distribute to individuals and families in need, within our local community.
M&S Volunteer Day
As part of Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June 2019), five members of M&S staff came along to help revamp the outside space at Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford.
Amber, Mandy, Gemma, Isla and Tina, along with a few other volunteers from the school, spent all day on Tuesday 4 June repainting the driveway fencing, planting flowers in the forest school to attract bees, and installing hedgehog houses and wildlife cameras.
We are looking forward to welcoming them back to the school in the future.
Harvest Festival 2019
This event saw us come together with the local community to provide food parcels for the elderly and war veterans living in the local area.
Tesco bakery baked us some fantastic display bread and the whole school decorated boxes and brought goods in. This was then sorted by Year 6 and distributed to our neighbours in the local area.
