A school has been praised by the Mayor of London for its “fantastic work” in achieving outstanding outcomes for pupils.

Pinner Wood School in Harrow was celebrated by Sadiq Khan’s Schools for Success programme and invited to an awards ceremony at City hall.

The mayor’s scheme aims to improve expectations and raise standards for London schoolchildren no matter their background.

The school, together with a handful of others, was celebrated for creating a “supportive and inclusive” learning environment.

Pinner Wood headteacher Sarah Marriott said: “Now I know what it feels like for one of our children when a teacher gives them a reward sticker or praises them.

“We are committed to supporting all pupils, regardless of their starting points, to fulfil their potential. What an honour it is to be recognised by the mayor as a London School for Success.”

Mr Khan said: “I’d like to congratulate Pinner Wood School 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.”
