UNDERSHAW is giving itself a massive pat on the back after receiving flagship status from the skills builder partnership.

The Undershaw employability curriculum has been transformed over the past few years and is now setting the standard for life skills education across SEND education.

Essential skills are key in pupils learning but Undershaw believes access to these skills isn’t fair.

Leilah Sheridan, head of employability and life skills, said: “We were so delighted with our gold award last summer. 

“As the academic year turned, we became increasingly aware of just how important it is to model what we teach. 

“We focused on our creativity and aiming high as we set our sights on the flagship award. We have a responsibility to add our voice to change and with this flagship award, we have placed Undershaw at the forefront of the evolution.”
