Our Co-Op Dimension

As a Co-operative School we join the millions of people across the world who form the international co-operative movement. Co-operators believe in a set of core values.

Co-operative Schools are value driven organisations and use their internationally agreed values and principles to develop young people into the citizens of tomorrow.

Values and Principles

The Values and Principles embraced by today’s worldwide co-operative movement have evolved from the ideals of the early co-operators of the 18th and 19th centuries. They are embodied in the Statement of Co-operative Identity published by the International Co-operative Alliance.
