In 2011 the Government defined British Values as :

  1. Democracy
  2. Rule of Law
  3. Individual Liberty
  4. Mutual Respect
  5. Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

We promote these universal values through our own school ethos, values, curriculum and enrichment activities.


We are delighted to have achieved the Rainbow Flag Award this year (2020-2022). It is awarded to schools who have "demonstrated a whole school approach to the positive inclusion and visibility of LGBT+ people, and have a commitment to the eradication of LGBTphobic bullying." 
We are very proud to receive this award.

In May 2017, the school was featured in an article for The Guardian in which we were identified as a ‘beacon of good practice’ in respect of promoting diversity.

Arbury Primary school was described as having “exemplary practice” in the 2017 Stonewall Education Equality Index where Cambridgeshire local authority was awarded 4th place nationally.

Arbury Primary School currently holds the ‘Equalities Award’ and is a ‘Stonewall School Champion.’

This practical advice on 'Being a Trans-Friendly School' may be useful to school leaders, parents and carers.

School leaders, parents and carers may wish to find out more about how we work to 'Promote Gender Equality in School.'
