As a Co-operative MAT, we have adopted the following Co-operative Values within our schools:
Our Co-operative Values
Encouraging all within the organisation to help each other, by working together to gain mutual benefits. This is incorporated into our peer support and mentoring programmes.
To take responsibility for, and answer to, our actions. This is incorporated into our Personal Responsibility programme.
To give our stakeholders a say in the way we run our school, through the school council, stakeholder forums, Parent Association.
Equal rights and benefits according to their contribution.
Being fair and unbiased.
Supporting each other and those in other co-operatives.
Our Ethical Values
Consistent with the values of the founders of the Co-operative Movement, we believe in the ethical values of:
- Social responsibility
- Caring for others
In our schools we ensure these values are reflected in our curriculum and in particular are discussed and promoted with staff and students.
