I am delighted to introduce myself as the Headteacher at Beenham Primary School. I have been in post since January 2021, during my time at the school, we have experienced a phase of remote learning and only lived life in 'bubbles'. I have received a very warm welcome from the staff, children and parents and I am excited about being part of the next phase in the school’s journey.
We are all very proud of our small village school and the community it belongs to. The school has a strong family ethos that is underpinned by our core values of: independence, responsibility, quality, co-operation, resilience and care.
Our school motto is: Valuing ourselves. Valuing everybody. Throughout the children's time at our school, we aim for them to develop an appreciation for and tolerance of others around us, whilst growing core personal values, which help them to know and understand themselves.
We are a highly motivated, hard-working team who are passionate about children's learning. We strive to ensure each child reaches their full potential and is ready for their next chapter of education when they leave us. All of our staff are committed to personal continuing professional development to ensure that they have a strong understanding of the subjects that they teach and are using the very best ways to help our children learn.
Visits to the school are always warmly welcomed. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.

'It's a small school embedded in a village community. The children meet others in their village and the parents get to know them too. This allows the children greater independence and safety as they go around the village. I think the values based learning is amazing. Taking responsibility and learning values is essential for life. The children have also got to do a great variety of activities and learning has always been fun.'
We were quite nervous of how our timid, quiet son would get on at primary school. The change in him over the first half-term has been amazing!
His confidence has grown so much, and he is really enjoying interacting with other students and taking part in
the class activities. The school provides a caring and nurturing environment that really suits him.
We have been particularly impressed by the personalised attention he receives from his teachers.
We couldn't have wanted more for the beginning of his school journey.
