The Co-operative is committed to developing a dynamic and active co-operative schools movement in the UK. We are working with a range of organisation across the UK to make this vision a reality.
The Co-operative Group sponsors seven academies; three secondary and four primary. Through our support for these schools we are working to improve life chances for learners in deprived communities, and provide an outstanding education based on co-operative values. The Co-operative Academies Trust has been set up to help develop and deliver the vision for our academy programme
Supporting Co-operative Schools
We are proud to be working with the Schools Co-operative Society to create a strong independent voice and mutual support for all co-operative schools. We support the Co-operative College to help schools become co-operatives. The Co-operative works with a network of schools in Northern Ireland who are working to embed co-operative values in their schools.
Promoting Co-operative Values
We are a unique business with much to share. Exciting initiatives such as the Green Schools Revolution, that all schools can get involved in, give young people the chance to find out more about our business and our values.
