Co-op Academy Glebe: Vision and Values

Thrive Display


At Co-op Academy Glebe our core Vision and Values are underpinned by 6 key areas: 

Togetherness, Hunger to learn, Resilience, Inspiring Individuals, Valuing all and Excel & Enjoy - these form our THRIVE culture, which incorporates high performing experiences where children are engaged and challenged and developed educationally, physically, socially and emotionally.  Within these six core values, we also recognise and observe our four Co-op Ways of Being of: Do what matters most, Succeed Together, Show you care and Be Yourself Always.


We work together to succeed together.  We have a healthy connection to each other as a school and recognise the need to work as a team to achieve the best we can.  

We identify when someone needs help and when we need others' help. 

Hunger to learn:

We come to school with our best self each day.  We try our very best at everything we do and show curiosity and determination in our learning. We ask questions and take risks in our learning to maximise our potential.  We do not make excuses for ourselves and always strive to do our best.


We can handle all of the hurdles learning can bring. Being resilient means we can weather the storm, go back and try again and not give up. We can self-manage our own distractions and not distract others; creating our own ‘flow’ of learning. We understand that things worth doing are not necessarily easy and take hard work and determination.

Inspiring Individuals:

We inspire each other to do well and achieve each day.  We know that to be inspiring means to uplift or encourage someone to do something or feel something creative.  We do this by being motivated, a great role model, a positive thinker and passionate about the things we love to do and learn.

Valuing all: 

We know that everyone matters. We all have different backgrounds, talents, personalities and preferences and that these are all important.  We show respect to everyone and treat everyone as equal.  We know we are all part of the Glebe family but celebrate each person for their individual talents and uniqueness.

Excel and Enjoy: 

We come to school every day to achieve the very best we can.  We reach for the stars in every lesson and enjoy the experience of learning and the successes we achieve.  We understand that with hard work we can excel in all areas of our learning and we can achieve anything we put our mind to and more!

Co-op Academy Glebe: Ways of Being Co-op 

The four Ways of Being Co-op guide our future – no matter what we do, they’re how we do it.

Do what matters most

What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.

We make a positive difference to our children through showing exemplary professional behaviours.


Be yourself, always

We bring our best self to work, so that we each contribute a bit of our own unique Co-op difference, and respect others for doing the same.

We understand that we are all unique and bring our own strengths to work.


Show you care

We care about our Co-op, our colleagues, our members, our students, their parents and communities, now and for the future.

Our focus remains on doing our best for our children.


Succeed together

Co-operating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.

We recognise that what we achieve is achieved together.
