Outstanding achievements of Sybourn Primary School recognised by the Mayor of London!
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has celebrated the outstanding performance of Sybourn Primary School in Waltham Forest 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.

Sybourn Primary School has been recognised for high levels of progress for lower prior attaining children. Only six per cent of London schools are eligible to be members of the Schools for Success programme.

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 September 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 Sybourn 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.”
