The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has celebrated the exceptional performance of St Michael’s Catholic College in Southwark as part of his Schools for Success programme.
The school has been honoured for its commitment to reducing educational inequality and attaining exceptional results for children previously struggling academically.
St Michael’s has been awarded a certificate for ‘Ensuring Excellent Outcomes for all Students’
Created in 2017, the Schools for Success programme was formed to enhance the support given to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The programme acknowledges primary and secondary schools that prioritise progress for their lowest attaining pupils, are excelling in their performance overall and sharing their work with other schools through a series of webinars made available to all London schools. Approximately six per cent of London schools are eligible to be members of the Schools for Success programme
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’d like to congratulate the staff of St Michael’s Catholic College for their exceptional work. We created Schools for Success to recognise the positive impact that teachers, headteachers, teaching assistants, support staff and governors are making every day to support students and reduce inequalities, and this school’s commitment to being supportive and inclusive sets a great example. Covid-19 has presented unforeseen challenges across our city but St Michael’s Catholic College has done a fantastic job in maintaining excellence during a very difficult time. Working together we can make sure that no young Londoner is left behind”
