It is a privilege to welcome you to Co-op Academy Leeds, a truly diverse and inclusive school where student progress and wellbeing are at the core of everything we do.

Our warm and supportive relationships with students mean that children can thrive and become independent and resilient learners who leave us at sixteen with an incredible future ahead of them.

Leaders are determined that all pupils access a high-quality, broad curriculum, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who speak English as an additional language. Leaders ensure that they have a very good understanding of pupils’ starting points. They use this information to ensure that pupils get the specific help and support they need to progress.
The values of the Co-op Academies Trust underpin leaders’ work to build a strong school community. The idea of equality, in particular, is strong. Pupils are proud of being part of a multicultural school community, and leaders ensure that all pupils are valued.
There has been a strong focus on curriculum development recently. Consequently, leaders at all levels have clearly mapped the ‘powerful knowledge’ they want pupils to gain.
Pupils are proud to be part of a diverse community. All backgrounds are valued. Pupils respect each other because leaders ensure that all pupils see themselves represented in the curriculum and activities that are planned.
There are thriving extra-curricular music clubs which pupils enjoy. Leaders provide sports equipment so that pupils can participate in school and local competitions. Pupils feel cared for by their teachers.
