About our school
Bean Primary School is a one-form entry, village primary school set in an idyllic rural location; it even has its own woods! Children are offered a broad and stimulating curriculum which is taught through topics, allowing children to make links between their learning, helping them to piece together knowledge through the why, how, when and where questions that children frequently ask. Staff understand that to develop children fully, a broad range of experiences are required to allow each child to shine and achieve. These include: outdoor learning activities, a wide range of sporting opportunities, afterschool clubs, two residential trips in the older age groups, opportunities for House Captains and Rights Respecting Ambassadors to represent the school and numerous performance opportunities throughout the age groups promoting acting, singing and dancing. Our Year 4 pupils have just recently presented a wonderful ukulele performance to parents and our Year 5s sung beautifully at the Orchard Theatre. Children’s achievements are captured in our weekly celebration assemblies which are open to parents.
By working with parents, we are proud that our pupils are 6% healthier than children nationally and that this year, pupils exceeded the national average for the expected standard in all key areas in the reported national figures.
Ofsted 2017 “Personal development and welfare are strong. Staff care deeply about the pupils in the school.”

Communication from school to parents is an area we are keen to improve at Bean, which resulted in our second parents’ forum meeting being held this week. The six parents who attended, between them, had children in six out of the seven classes which provided us with a very clear picture across the school. They had also diligently sought the views of some of the wider school community and informed me about the areas parents considered were going well and those areas that need to improve.
As a staff, we are now looking at developing our systems so that parents and carers are better informed about the routines, processes and developments taking place in school. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to discuss this with your class representative or email the office and your suggestion will be discussed at our next meeting. The class representatives are:
Classes: England Class - Miss Pinder, Ireland Class – Miss Burke and Mrs Albury, Italy Class – Mrs Eastwood, Mrs Kesby and Miss Pinder, Argentina Class - Mrs White and Mrs Rosbrook, Mexico Class - Mrs Kesby, Maldives Class – Mrs Albury and Kenya Class Mrs White, Mrs Rosbrook and Miss Burke.
If you have a child in Maldives Class, I’d be grateful if you’d consider joining us at our next meeting. Please contact the office for more details.
