OUR is based in Gloucester in the South West Region of England as a co-operative Multi- Academy Trust. One of its strengths is the ability to support schools in becoming good and outstanding academies.
OUR is part of the School Co-operative Society, which is a national organisation of some 800 schools. Though this network we are able to access a wide range of support both locally and nationally.
Our ideal method is to access support locally and we will discuss this in detail with a school when they are considering joining us. This could be:-
If your school is currently part of a co-operative cluster, perhaps a co-operative Foundation Trust we would want you to remain working with them.
These are important. We feel that schools should work with groups that help them and we would encourage this.
