School Aims and Values
The values and aims of Hampsthwaite School are built firmly on Christian beliefs and principles, embodied not only in our heritage as a Church School but also in our everyday interactions and activities. It is through the support we give to each other that we build up respect, friendship and effective teamwork. We put children's enjoyment and achievement at the centre of everything we do, working with creativity to develop imagination and skills in an exciting yet challenging way.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with the DfE we aim to actively promote British values, to ensure children are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Children are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance, and to understand that, whilst people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, everyone living in Britain is subject to British law. The fundamental British values are: democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
