British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values


In accordance with The Department for Education, we aim to actively promote British values in school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.


The Key Values are:


  • democracy

  • rule of law

  • individual liberty

  • mutual respect

  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs 

Promoting the Protected Characteristics at Hampreston


We work to ensure that our children understand that:

There are no outsiders at Hampreston

Everyone is different

We celebrate our differences

We are all equal in our differences


The Equality Act became law in 2010. It covers everyone in Britain and protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Everyone in Britain is protected. This is because the Equality Act protects people against discrimination because of the protected characteristics that we all have. Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:

  1. Age

  2. Disability

  3. Gender reassignment

  4. Race

  5. Religion or belief

  6. Marriage or civil partnership

  7. Sex

  8. Sexual orientation

  9. Pregnancy and maternity

At Hampreston, we actively promote these in our curriculum and work to embed them into our ethos. 


Under the Equality Act you are protected from discrimination:

  • When you are in the workplace

  • When you use public services like healthcare (for example, visiting your doctor or local hospital) or education (for example, at your school or college)

  • When you use businesses and other organisations that provide services and goods (like shops, restaurants, and cinemas)

  • When you use transport

  • When you join a club or association (for example, your local rugby club)

  • When you have contact with public bodies like your local council or government departments
