Co-operative Values and Principles
Co-operative Schools and other educational co-operatives are part of the UK Co-operative Movement. There are over a 1000 independent co-operatives in the UK, operating in a wide range of different sectors, but all sharing the same Values and Principles
Co-operative Schools are about developing a balanced set of values that will help young people become the good citizens our society needs.
The Values and Principles we have adopted are internationally agreed and used by Co-operatives across the world.
Membership of SCS is open to any school or educational co-operative as long as they share our values and principles. Our members use these values in their own organisation and work with other SCS members for everyone’s benefit.
