Our Ethos, Vision & Values

At Hampton College Primary we have established an ethos based on positive relationships and mutual respect between each other. The College Vision and Values form the core of our ethos as an ‘all through’ school, with the PROUD aspirations promoting our Vision and Values in a primary friendly way.

  • Hampton College Vision and Values

    Our vision at Hampton College is to be an outstanding college. Our mission is to meet the needs of our children and to equip them to fulfil their potential, and to provide high quality learning and leisure opportunities for members of our community. Our values are summarised by the following eight statements;  

    • we value people
    • we value learning
    • we value positive behaviour
    • we value health
    • we value leadership
    • we value our community
    • we value our environment
    • we value the future

    Further information about our College Vision and Values can be found on the Hampton College website.

  • Our PROUD aspirations

    At Hampton College Primary we have translated the Hampton College Vision and Values into five aspirations which are collectively known as our PROUD approach. These five aspirations are embedded within school and set the ethos for our primary phase for children, staff, parents and visitors alike. We are PROUD of Hampton College and we are PROUD of our aspirations.
     

    Each of our five PROUD aspirations is further embedded in school through our weekly PROUD themes. Each weekly theme is displayed around school, shared in an assembly and discussed in class during that week.

     

    The weekly PROUD themes for 2016/17 are:

    Play and learn together calmly

    • How do we find new friends?
    • How can we share with each other?
    • What makes us great learners?
    • Who can help us with our learning?
    • How do we stay calm?

    Respect others

    • How do I respect myself?
    • How can we show respect to others?
    • Why are our manners important?
    • How do we welcome people into our lives?
    • What makes us all special and unique?

    Own our school

    • Why is our school important to us?
    • How can we look after our school?
    • Who makes our school great?
    • Who is part of our school community? 
    • How do we show our pride in our school?

    Understand boundaries

    • Why do we have boundaries?
    • How can we be the best role models for each other?
    • How can I care for other people’s feelings?
    • Why do we tell the truth?
    • How do I keep myself safe?

    Do our best… always

    • What can I do to be the best?
    • How can I show I am proud of others?
    • Why is teamwork important?
    • How can I persevere?
    • How do I develop resilience? 
  • British Values and SMSC

    At Hampton College Primary we recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and understand the crucial role our school plays in promoting fundamental British Values, which are defined by the government as

    • democracy
    • the rule of law
    • individual liberty
    • mutual respect 
    • tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

    Throughout our primary phase we promote these values through our own school values; PROUD aspirations and weekly PROUD themes; whole school assemblies; explicit teaching in Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Religious Education (RE) lessons and through school enrichment activities.

    Actively promoting British Values also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
     

    SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  SMSC is promoted through assemblies which include all children and cover a broad range of spiritual, moral, social and cultural viewpoints, as well as through our curriculum and deeper learning opportunities such as our Family days and parental workshops.

  • Equality and Diversity

    At Hampton College Primary, we are committed to promoting and achieving equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents, carers and visitors connected to our school, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion and belief, gender, sexual orientation or socio-economic background.  


    We strive to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life. We tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Hampton College Primary, we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by everybody in our school community.
