The Mayor’s London Schools Gold Club is an annual scheme which celebrates and shares exceptional practice in London’s primary and secondary schools.
Gold Club members are schools that have succeeded against the odds in improving pupils’ aspirations and achievements – See more at: http://www.londonschoolsgoldclub.org.uk/. Barnes Primary School is one of only a handful of schools in London that was asked to be a member of this scheme for three consecutive years (2013, 2014 and 2015). The criteria for being chosen relates to the academic performance of pupils from less advantaged backgrounds. As a member, when this scheme was running we were committed to sharing effective practice with other schools.
