Pelham and Normandy Primary Schools in Bexley Local Authority have been celebrated under a new programme set up by the Mayor of London, to recognise exceptional schools in the capital. ‘Schools for Success’ is part of the Mayor’s drive to help tackle education inequality and increase standards for all school children across the capital, whatever their background.
Pelham and Normandy Primary School have been recognised in the ‘Schools for Success’ Awards, because of their expectation that all groups of pupils have the right to an education which enables them to achieve not only in attainment but progress, regardless of their starting points.
“Leaders and staff at all levels have worked exceptionally hard with the support of our parent community to raise the outcomes for all pupils. I am very proud of both schools in the Trust to have achieved such a recognition.” Executive Head Teacher, Mr Andrew Hogarth.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Congratulations to Pelham and Normandy Primary Schools for their outstanding achievements and for the hard work of their pupils and teaching staff. London has some of the best schools in the country, and Schools for Success shows the huge difference good quality teaching can make to pupils who started off behind in their studies. By sharing best practice with other schools across the capital, we can help every young Londoner reach their full potential, and ensure no child is left behind.”
