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 SET@stratton.beds.sch.uk .

Exam Contingency Policy

This plan examines potential risks and issues that could cause disruption to the management and administration of the exam process at Stratton Upper School. By outlining actions/procedures to be invoked in case of disruption it is intended to mitigate the impact these disruptions have on our exam process.

Alongside internal processes, this plan is informed by scenarios contained in the Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland which provides guidance in the publication What schools and colleges and other centres should do if exams or other assessments are seriously disrupted

This plan also confirms Stratton Upper School is compliant with the JCQ general regulation (section 5.3, General Regulations for Approved Centres 2019-2020) that the centre has in place a written examination contingency plan which covers all aspects of examination administration. They will allow members of the senior leadership team to act immediately in the event of an emergency or staff absence.
