Vision and Values

Our Co-op Values

Self-help: We do not expect to be spoon fed – we will try to do things for ourselves in the right way and at the right time.

Self-responsibility: Everyone should act in a responsible way around the academy site and in the local community. We take responsibility for our own learning; we want to become independent learners.

Equality: We are proud to be part of a very multi-cultural academy, with students from all over the world; it is important that we treat each other with respect and accept that others may be different from ourselves. We should all of us have equal chances to succeed.

Equity: We want to look for the best in each other. Rewarding others fairly to encourage all types of achievement.

Democracy: We will contribute our ideas to make the academy a success.

Solidarity: We can achieve more by working together, rather than as individuals.

These are the values of co-operatives all over the world; what ever we do, they are the way that we do it.

Co-op Ways of Being.

As a part of a Co-op Academy, we all feel responsible, valued, empowered and trusted to do the right thing for each other.

The four Ways of Being guide our future.

The Co-operative Values sit right beside our vision:

We will all show these values in their daily lives and praise each other when we see someone doing the same. Find out more about our Co-op commitment.
