Vision and Values

Vision and Values

Our school motto of ‘Striving to be Co-op’ is the foundation on which our educational values are built. The Co-op was founded on a set of values guiding a different, fairer and better way of doing thing. We follow these values in all our academy life and refer to them as our ‘Ways of Being’.

We have an established culture in which openness and fairness is encouraged. Students, teachers and the wider community work together in a professional and efficient environment.

Caring for others is promoted at Co-op Academy Swinton, where we understand that everyone is valued.

We aim for high achievement in an environment which is based on rewards, not sanctions. We share the common values of ‘respect’ and ‘honesty’.

Our ‘Ways of Being’ are;

Do what matters most

What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.

Show you care

We care about our academy, creating an environment of trust, safety and respect, now and for the future.

Be yourself, always

We bring our best self to Co-op Academy Swinton, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same.

Succeed together

Success is a measure of our determination, we’re better and stronger when we work together.
