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 the previous academic year which have improved our school environment.

The school is proud of the work and was graded as an Outstanding school by Ofsted (March 2015). We are especially proud of our PSHCE 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.
