World Book Day saw children dress up as their favourite book character, and here are our winners! 

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.”

Sporting Success

Posted: Apr 29, 2018 by: admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Ten pupils were selected this week from England and Ireland Class (Yr 1&2) to represent the school in an inter-school infant agility competition that tested their athletic and gymnastic abilities. It was the first time many of the children had competed against other schools, many much larger than Bean. Fourteen schools entered this annual event and I am delighted to report that Bean achieved first place!

The children will now progress to the Kent School Games finals representing Dartford in the summer. 

The girls football team also experienced success this week as they competed against Westgate Primary School  and came away with a 6-1 win! Congratulations to all those involved. 

To continue with our sporting theme, you may be interested to know that 52% of all our pupils took part in one of the seven after school clubs this week which includes dance, gymnastics, cricket and football. There are still places if you’d like your child to participate in one or more of these activities.
