Co-operative Learning Trust
West Hull Co-operative Learning Trust
Kelvin Hall School is part of the West Hull Co-operative Learning Trust, an organisation that was formed in January 2011 to share best practice between schools and their partners.
The aim of the Trust is to build the values of self-responsibility, democracy, equality and solidarity in its members and for these values to be passed on to students.
By working in partnership with other educational establishments, Kelvin Hall will work towards improving achievement and standards for pupils; improving transition at key stage two, benefit from shared curriculum development with other members by sharing resources through ICT; and offer joint training opportunities for staff. The school will also be able to offer better support to students and their families through the development of Restorative Practice (RP).
Other members of the West Hull Co-operative Learning Trust include: Sydney Smith School, Wyke College, Hull Local Authority, Hull College and the Co-operative College, which is an education charity that encourages schools and colleges to work together in partnership.
The school’s pupils, their parents and carers and people from the local community are also encouraged to get involved by joining the school’s Cooperative Learning Trust forum.
The School Forum is currently being created and when formed, will meet to discuss matters surrounding the school and its partnership in the Trust. It is the intention of the Trust that the School Forum will be created during Autumn 2011 and will hold its first meeting before the end of this term.
To find out more about how to get involved, or to express an interest in joining the forum, contact the PA to the headteacher, on (01482) 342229. For more information about co-operative learning trusts, visit www.co-op.ac.uk.
