Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to our school website! I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Stepping Stones Short Stay School!

Stepping Stones is a primary pupil referral unit. The school is based in Lancaster although covers the areas of Lancaster, Morecambe, Carnforth, Wyre and Fylde. The school provides educational placement for up to 32 primary pupils aged between 5-11 who have been permanently excluded or at great risk of permanent exclusion.

We had major refurbishments during 2017-2018 year which improved our school environment.

The school is proud of the work and was graded as an Outstanding school by Ofsted (March 2015 and March 2019). We are especially proud of our Positive Mental Health strategy and values based curriculum.

Children educated at Stepping Stones are respectful, kind, tolerant, committed and confident. They are taught the importance to both trust and to be trustworthy within their school community. The School works in close partnership with parents/ carers and the communities in which it serves to prevent pupils from exclusion and to promote inclusion.

We help children and families believe in themselves again.
