Enabling Achievement

A Message from the Headteacher

Mr P Edmondson, Headteacher

I am delighted to introduce our school website. The purpose of the website is to inform you about the curriculum, facilities and organisation of the school and – perhaps more importantly –to give you a flavour of the ethos and underlying philosophy.

We are all extremely proud of our school where our students continue to achieve and flourish both educationally and socially in a supportive and friendly environment. Morecambe Road School's aim is to encourage all individuals to value themselves and give their best.

A website cannot fully capture the nature of life in a school - do come and see us at the school. Contact the school on telephone number 01524 414384 or via the contact us page for further information.


Morecambe Road School


Morecambe Road School is a Day Special School for pupils with a range of special educational needs, primarily moderate or severe learning difficulties, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, or autistic spectrum disorders, aged 3 to 16 years (149 pupils currently on roll). Pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or will be in the final stages of assessment procedures.

Morecambe Road School has class sizes of 10-12 pupils and teaching groups will normally consist of 3-5 pupils to each adult. The Primary Phase operates like a mainstream Primary school, with 5 classes. Similarly the Secondary phase includes 10 form groups with a timetable of specialist subjects. The school's curricular programme is consistent with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. The school has a firm commitment to meet the individual needs of each pupil and it is the aim in all curriculum subjects to allow each pupil to attain his or her full potential.

A majority of pupils learn and progress through inclusive activities with peers from other local schools. For example KS3 pupils learn new skills and progress in Outdoor Education. There are link courses with local schools and FE colleges.

The school has a full-time Speech & Language Therapist, Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist working in school. Additionally CAMHS workers are based part time at Morecambe Road School.

The school provides and has links with extended services through holiday schemes and after school clubs.


If you required a translated copy of any the documents on our website e.g. letters, polices then please contact the School Office on Tel.01524 414384.

Morecambe Road School provides equal access to all facilities and services regardless of disability. The school is committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors. This commitment has been met through physical improvements to the school environment, such as ramps, hand rails and automatic doors.
