John Ruskin Primary School received a commendation at a glitzy award ceremony hosted by comedian David Baddiel last month.
The Camberwell school was honoured on September 24 in the Primary School of the Year category at the Shine A Light Awards, which celebrated schools that show “innovative work, inspirational individuals and excellent practice.”
They were complimented for their creative support for children with speech, language and communication needs – something Baddiel said was a “true inspiration.”
He added: “I would like to say well done to all those shortlisted, who have shown true grit and determination to better themselves and others.”
John Ruskin Primary School teacher Suzy Gregory said: “We are delighted to have been highly commended for the Primary School of the Year category.
“For us, the award represents recognition for all the hard work the whole team puts into supporting our children on a daily basis.”
