The school ethos promotes the individuality of all pupils, irrespective of attainment, age or ability and that all pupils have a common curriculum experience. This ethos has impacted on our teaching and learning, ensuring that every pupil has an entitlement to develop their full potential. Educational experiences are provided, which develop pupils’ achievements and recognises their individuality.

  • Diversity is valued as a rich resource which supports the learning for all.
  • Providing for pupils who need help with communication, language and literacy.
  • Develop pupils’ understanding through the use of all available senses and experiences.
  • Effective delivery encouraging pupils’ full participation in learning and in physical or practical activities.

Help pupils to manage their behaviour, to take part in learning effectively and safely, and at Key Stage 4, to prepare for post 16 transition.

  • Enabling individuals to manage their emotions and take an active part in learning.

Morecambe Road School provides a rich curriculum for pupils to develop their academic, social and emotional skills. Pupils are taught by specialist staff within a specialist environment. Our curriculum is valued for its cross-curricular elements, aiming to reinforce concepts and extend the pupil’s curiosity. We focus on celebrating each step of progress within these curricular areas.

  • Create effective learning environments
  • Secure pupil motivation and concentration
  • Provide equality of opportunity through teaching approaches
  • Use appropriate assessment approaches
  • Set targets for learning.

During each term, pupils are assessed and set targets within each curricular area. These are shared and discussed with parents/carers during annual reviews and parents evenings. Feedback is provided for these targets at the end of each term to the Senior Leadership Team.


Within Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 pupils are organised into age based tutor groups at the start of the day running from Y7 – Y11.

The curriculum delivered is reviewed year on year to account for changes nationally and locally and to meet the needs of different groups of pupils as they progress through school.
