Barcombe is a thriving village and the school is very much at the heart of the community. Many of the parents and adults in the village have a connection to the school, whether they once attended themselves or are on the board of governors or members of the PTA. There is a strong bond between the school and the community and pupils both know and are well-known to adults, resulting in a caring environment.
An important part of the school's ethos is that we consider and care for others, at school and in the wider community. At the start of term, each class votes for and elects a charity for which it will raise funds throughout the school year. Last year, the children raised over £1000 for their chosen charities.
Towards the end of the summer term, Year 6 pupils from primary schools in and around Lewes come together for the annual Lewes Patina, a celebratory parade through town to mark the end of their primary years and their transition to secondary education. Barcombe is proud to be part of this community festival.
