Our Ethos

At Hampton Junior School we have high expectations, both for academic work and behaviour. We believe intelligence and ability are not fixed and if our children develop skills such as resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and apply themselves they can meet their full potential and achieve great things. This can be seen in our HPP principles which guide our children and staff.

We expect all members of the school community - children, staff, parents and governors - to work together to maintain these standards and for children to work purposefully towards being the best they can be. 

HJS British Values

At HJS we value and reflect British values in all that we do.

British values are not taught as individual lessons but are embodied within the ethos and culture of our school and reflected within our school mission statement and our golden rules which are there for the benefit of everyone within our school community.

The Department for Education states that all schools should promote fundamental British values. The definition of these British values is taken from The Home Office’s Prevent Strategy and is defined as :


Respect for democracy and support or participation in the democratic process

The Rule of Law:

Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England

Individual Liberty

Support for equality of opportunity for all

Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs:

Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religions and other beliefs.
