Personal, Social and Health Education


PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.


Barming Primary School uses the following scheme of work to ensure clear coverage and impact for our children.


Follow the link to find out more:


Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.


We embrace and celebrate our differences through Diversity day and Multicultural days.


As a school we empower our children to be the very best citizens they can be by exploring Anti-Bullying ideas, Cyber-Bullying and Online Safety. This ensures our children our protected and they know how to support their friends.


Transition days support our children with life changes and enable them to cope with and embrace change. We provide opportunities for our children to work across age groups and across the school to learn key skills in cooperation, resilience, team building and communication.

How do we support others at Barming Primary School?



In our Harvest assembly we thought about  how we can give to those who do not have enough to eat.  At Barming, we have pledged to support a local charity, The Pilsdon at Malling.  This charity provides an environment where people can rebuild their lives after experiencing a crisis, whether sudden or progressive. They offer a safe home for those working through many problems including depression, addiction or bereavement. They also welcome people who wish to find time to reflect on their lives before making a change in direction or just want time out to live as part of a Community.


The children then worked incredibly hard to collect boxes and fill them with yummy food so we can support others in their time of need.


This was the largest donation we have ever seen here at Barming. A big thank you to everyone who has donated!

Anti - Bullying Week 2020

This year the theme for anti-bullying week is 'United Against Bullying'.

On Monday 16th November, children wore odd socks to school to recognise that we are all different and that is ok. 

Remember: We can all make a change by listening, by noticing  and by working together to stop bullying.





Christmas Jumper Day 2020 for Save the Children

                            Children's Mental Health Week 2021

This year we supported 'Place2Be' and celebrated Children's Mental Health Week. We watched a fantastic assembly from Oak National Academy to introduce us to the week and completed activities throughout the week. On Friday we had a 'No Screen Day' where all work set did not need a screen to complete! We also 'Dressed to Express'. We saw lots of fantastic outfits from key worker children in school and children learning at home.

NSPCC Number Day

National Society Prevention Cruelty Children

Today we learned about the charity NSPCC. We looked into what they do and how the help families. 

We discussed how we use numbers in every day life for houses, phone numbers, times and cooking. We also thought about different jobs where you use numbers (there was a lot!) and finally we thought about games where we use numbers. 

Look at our fantastic number outfits and what we have been up to...
