On Friday 27th September Mrs Lansdown and Mrs Walsh attended London City Hall to receive an award for the exceptional work we are all doing here at Stanburn Primary School. We would like to share the following official press release:
Outstanding achievements of Stanburn Primary School recognised by the Mayor of London
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has celebrated the outstanding performance of Stanburn Primary School in Harrow 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. Stanburn Primary School has been recognised for the amazing work it has done. There has been a huge improvement in terms of pupil progress and attainment. Children are excited by what they learn, love coming to school and embrace challenge. Parents are well supported and involved.
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 pupils, has a strong overall performance and shares their work with other schools. Only six per cent of London schools are eligible to be members of the Schools for Success programme. The ceremony was hosted on Friday 27thSeptember 2019 by Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCartney.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate the staff of Stanburn Primary School 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.”
“We are absolutely delighted to receive this award which recognises what an amazing school Stanburn is. This success can be attributed to all the hard work, dedication and commitment of the staff, parents and especially the children of Stanburn.”
