As a result of our move to CMAT on 1st October 2020, we are currently updating many of our local school policies.

The Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust through the Trust Board and its Policy and Scrutiny Committees and the Executive Committee (Principals’ Committee) establishes many trust-wide policies relating to safeguarding, student welfare, teaching and learning, personnel and finance. These can be found on the CMAT website here.

Stratton Upper School was part of Stratton Education Trust until 30 September.  For information about Stratton Education Trust, please contact is .

Teaching and Learning Policy

Vision: At the heart of our approach is the concept of:

Equity and Excellence

This means that at Stratton Upper School we strive to give students an outstanding and fair experience of learning and opportunity. Our aim therefore is to support every teacher to develop their practice such that they become outstanding teachers with thorough evidence of excellence in the Teachers’ Standards.

We aim for our students to become skilled, engaged and independent learners with the ability to make rapid and sustained progress.

There are 4 key areas that build the foundation of our approach to teaching and learning. These are engagement, challenge and support, independence and quality feedback

 Every student Engaged
 Every student Challenged and supported
 Every student an Independent learner
 Every student receiving and giving high quality Feedback
