Teaching & Learning

"Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better” Dylan Wiliam.


At Stratford School Academy we value all our staff and actively encourage their development. We recognise that Continuing Professional Development (CPD) promotes high morale, motivation, self esteem and collegiality in the workforce and strongly believe that the most effective teachers are those who take ownership and give a high priority to professional development. Teaching is not just a job, it is a profession that needs to be nurtured through regular professional development, in order to ensure teachers have the skills, knowledge and understanding to deliver the school aims and improve student outcomes.

All staff members have an entitlement to high-quality continuing professional development and are encouraged to actively seek out opportunities for their own professional development. This proactive and targeted approach to continuing professional development is essential for improving student experiences and outcomes.
