This documentation has been prepared in accordance with Section 2 (3) of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.
It describes the safety management strategy to comply with requirements from the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 to ensure that there are appropriate arrangements in place to plan, organise, control, monitor & review safety.
The Stratton Education Trust was set up on the 1st February 2012 and includes Stratton Upper School and Gamlingay Village College.
