Parkend Primary School

The small school with BIG ideas!

Our Community

We are very proud to be apart of the community of Parkend.

We have close links with the Forestry Commission and utilise the forest as much as we can. Long walks are taken in the forest, as well as enjoying many of the history and heritage of the forest.

We are part of the 100 club, which is run by local members of the community and we always love to donate to the over 65's club at harvest time.

The Lion's club art competition is always a favourite of ours and we look forward to this every year.


If you want anymore information on the local community and links then please feel free to contact Jill Roberts (our community links coordinator) through the school email:


Pupils and their families supported the Canopy Arts Festival by attending the Bream ArtsJab event with Mrs Wright in October 2021. The children (and some of the parents!) helped with the banners and had lots of fun doing the activities at the West Dean Parish Council Building.

Harvest Festival 2020

Please see our class Harvest celebrations on the video link under the Children section.


Unfortunately, this year we could not hold our usual Harvest Festival celebrations at the local church. 

However, the children worked hard to complete their own Harvest celebrations in their class. Although we could not bring everyone together across the school, we could bring each class together to celebrate.

The school asked for donations of money this year instead of goods. All the money raised went to Parkend's Over 65s.
