Schools for Success Award
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are pleased to announce that last week EWPS was given a Schools for Success Award on behalf of the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. The school was honoured for its work to reduce educational inequality and achieve exceptional results for children who were previously behind in their studies. It was presented at a Schools for Success awards ceremony hosted on Friday (27th) held by Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCartney.
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. This is the second time in the three years it has been running that EWPS has been awarded this status.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate the staff of Ellen Wilkinson Primary 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.”
