The Leader of Plymouth City Council, Labour & Co-operative Party councillor Tudor Evans, has given his support to co-operative schools in the city.
Writing on the Co-operative Councils blog, he said: “We believe this model will encourage collaboration between schools and partnership working to improve standards.
“Our children deserve the best possible start in life and we want the entire community to be involved in making this happen.”
He noted that Plymouth has a long history of co-operatives, and added: “We believe co-operative schools are the future of education in Plymouth – they are ethical and inclusive, embracing our ambition of becoming a co-operative council and our ambition to make Plymouth a truly democratic place to live.”
