The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has celebrated the outstanding performance of Randal Cremer Primary School in Hackney with an awards ceremony.
The school was honoured for its work to reduce educational inequality and achieve exceptional results for children who were previously behind in their studies, at a Schools for Success awards ceremony.
Randal Cremer has been recognised for the progress children working below expected at the end Of KS1 made to the end of KS2.
The Schools for Success programme was created by the Mayor in 2017 to improve the support given to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The programme recognises primary and secondary schools that ensure strong progress for their lowest attaining pupils, has a strong overall performance and shares their work with other schools.
The ceremony was hosted on Friday (27th) by Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCartney.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate the staff of Randal Cremer for their excellent work. Schools for Success was created to celebrate the difference that teachers, teaching assistants, support staff and governors are making every day to support children and reduce inequalities, and this school’s inclusive and supportive learning environment is a great example of this. London has the best schools and teachers in the country, and by working together we can make sure that no young Londoner is left behind.”
Jo Riley, Head Teacher, was delighted to receive the award on behalf of the staff, parents and children. She said, “we work hard every day to make Randal Cremer an inclusive school and are proud to have been included in the Schools for Success award this year”.
