It's official - Mayfield is a School for Success
Exceptional achievements of Mayfield recognised by Mayor of London.
The exceptional performance of Mayfield in Ealing has been honoured by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
Only 6% of London schools are eligible to be part of Schools for Success.
The school was invited to the Schools for Success awards ceremony at City Hall, on Friday 5th October to celebrate its achievements in supporting pupils needing extra help to fulfil their potential.
The Mayor’s programme aims to improve expectations and raise standards for London’s schoolchildren, regardless of their background.
Now in its second year, Schools for Success has created a network through which schools can share experiences and best practice with others across London.
More than 100 eligible schools are invited to join the programme and every local authority in the capital now has a school it can look to as an example. This group, refreshed annually, represents approximately six per cent of the capital’s schools.
Today’s ceremony was hosted by Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare Joanne McCartney. Mayfield has been recognised by the Schools for Success programme, because of the outstanding progress that children make.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate Mayfield for the fantastic work of their staff and pupils in the last year. Our Schools for Success programme shows the significant difference that a supportive and inclusive teaching environment can make for all pupils. London has some of the best schools in the country in the capital and by working together we can make sure that every young Londoner is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
“The staff, Governors and children of Mayfield Primary School are proud to receive this award, in recognition of the exceptional progress that children make in reading, writing and maths. This achievement acknowledges the talented staff, and the hard work and commitment of the children at Mayfield.” Belinda Ewart, Headteacher
Of the schools recognised this year, more than a third are participating for the second year running. All participating schools are encouraged to share their expertise with others through seminars and visits so that their success can be multiplied across London.
London’s schools are still outperforming the rest of the country. Overall 92 per cent of London’s schools are rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted, the highest of any region.
