Our Co-op Commitment

Our Co-op Commitment

We are proud to be a part of the Co-op Academies Trust, a group of academies united by the values underpinning the co-operative movement; self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.

 

We work together to support the Academy in making key decisions and in improving standards for our pupils. Representatives of the Co-op sit alongside parents, carers, staff and other members of our governing body.

What makes our Trust unique is that we are sponsored by the Co-op Group. This close relationship means that we benefit from all of the business expertise that has seen the Co-op grow to one of the most respected, successful businesses in the country.

The Co-operative Group

The Co-op’s commitment to education is nothing new, when the co-operative movement started in the mid-nineteenth century, it provided educational activities for members and their families. To this day, education is one of the underpinning principles of the movement globally.

The Co-op has a clear purpose of “championing a better way of doing business for you and your communities.” It is owned and governed by its members and membership is open to everyone who shares the Co-op values and principles. The Co-op’s values shape our own Academy Vision and Values and are a part of everything we do here.

We show these values by working together for everyone’s benefit, and playing a full part in the community. Through a great education we are changing the lives of young people across the north of England. Built on the same principles as all co-operatives across the world, we work with academies to empower teachers and young people to work together for a better education and a better community.
