Latin is the ancient language pupils study at Bean, helping children discover the roots of many of the words used in English today. It also forms the basis of  the European languages, which pupils go on to study at secondary school. 

Religious Education 

The Kent Agreed RE Syllabus forms the basis of the religious education taught across the key stages at Bean Primary. Teachers make links to topics where possible to ensure pupils' learning  is contextualised. A broad range of faiths are covered, helping to foster tolerance and acceptance of different faiths, cultures, and those not from a faith background.
