Middleton school makes the Educate Awards 2021 shortlist

Date published: 25 October 2021

Cardinal Langley RC High School has been shortlisted in this year’s Educate Awards for its support provided to students with additional needs.

The Middleton school, which has been identified as a beacon of best practice in the Rochdale borough, has been shortlisted for the SEND Provision Award for its respectful and dignified atmosphere for all students. 

Supporting the most vulnerable in its community is central to Cardinal Langley’s Catholic and Lasallian mission, and staff provide a wide range of interventions and support for a large number of students with complex needs.

Headteacher Andrew Bridson said: “We are immensely proud to have been shortlisted for this award.

“Our additional needs staff have worked incredibly hard during the pandemic to ensure that our young people have access to a high quality of education.

“They are a fantastic team and fully deserve this award for their commitment and dedication.”

The Educate Awards are the largest education awards in the North West and will take place at the iconic Liverpool Cathedral on Friday 19 November.

The awards – now in their tenth year – showcase the work of schools and colleges which are delivering outstanding education and helping students achieve their full potential. With over 21 categories, the shortlist recognises inspiring teachers, dedicated support staff and strategic leadership teams.

Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “A huge well done to Cardinal Langley RC High School for making this year’s shortlist.

“After a difficult 18 or so months, it is extremely important that we recognise the amazing schools and colleges which have supported students, families, staff and the wider communities during the pandemic. The calibre of entries was absolutely incredible and deciding on the shortlist was a really difficult process.

“As 2020’s ceremony didn’t take place in its usual format, we are excited to be planning a spectacular event which makes up for last year. We look forward to celebrating with everyone on 19 November.”
