Oliver Moores – Step by Step Funding Guide

“My name is Oliver Moores and I am a disabled university student in my second year of a business degree at Edge Hill University. I struggled to obtain funding for my care and educational needs. I worked alongside Barnardo’s in Lancashire, to put a step by step guide together to help any prospective university students with a disability to obtain to correct funding. Hopefully you will find the resource useful. Please pass it on to any of your colleagues or service users who you think might benefit from this.”

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

  • Provide equality of opportunity through teaching approaches
  • Use appropriate assessment approaches

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.
