Moor Hey School caters for Primary & Secondary age pupils and was awarded a Secondary specialism as a Mathematics & Computing College (July 2007).
All of our pupils have statements for special educational needs (or new Education, Health & Care Plans); all pupils have some degree of learning difficulty, some require speech and therapy support, a proportion of pupils have autism, visual or hearing impairments, physical difficulties, behavioural, emotional and social problems and specific learning difficulties. Increasingly pupils may have complex needs resulting in a combination of barriers to learning.
Pupils attending our school are generally from the South Ribble, Chorley, Preston and West Lancashire areas.
The majority of their learning takes place on-site in school but some pupils are able to attend mainstream partner schools for some lessons for specific purposes agreed by parents and schools. Vocational training is also provided for pupils in Years 10 and 11.
It has always been our practice to have links with mainstream provision and local community services.
We offer our pupils a structured and caring educational environment with positive community links. All our pupils work within the National Curriculum but it is extended to meet individual needs. When pupils leave the school at the end of Year 11 we have always managed to place our pupils in either open employment, a suitable training scheme or on a further education course.
We have a good reputation within the local community and the education sector. We welcome visitors throughout the year from mainstream schools and other agencies who use the school to broaden their knowledge & expertise.
We operate a genuine 'open door' policy. Staff will endeavour to make themselves available (subject to teaching commitments) and take time to build positive and effective relationships with pupils, parents/carers, professional colleagues and members of the public.
