The Aylesbury Learning Partnership (ALPS Cooperative Trust)
In September 2013, in partnership with Turnfurlong Junior School and The Grange School, Turnfurlong Infant School became part of the Aylesbury Learning Partnership (ALPs) and a Trust School. Trust Schools are a type of school that have the opportunity to be supported by a Charitable Trust, whilst still being part of the Local Authority family of schools. The Co-operative Trust strengthens our drive for continuous improvement, in particular through engaging more closely with the local community.
Our schools are committed to working together in partnership with each other and with our students, parents, and the wider community we seek to serve. We believe that being a Co-operative Trust helps us to develop further our community to make our schools even better.
The Trust supports the work of the schools within the partnership and is based upon strong, co-operative principles. These principles underpin the work of the Trust which we believe strengthens the work of our schools even further.
The trust has the following shared vision and values:
TAKING EDUCATION TO NEW HEIGHTS
- Achieving aspirational aims
- Learning together to enhance our community
- Providing positive futures for our children and families
- Securing success through co-operation
As a Co-operative Trust, our trust has adopted the values and principles of the co-operative movement. Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.
