Croydon Guardian: Croydon pupils continue to make the grade Croydon pupils continue to make the grade

Pupils in Croydon are achieving grades higher than the national average.

According to a new report, from early years foundation stages through to leaving sixth forms, schools in the borough are helping their students achieve top grades.

The report sets out a range of improvements and new initiatives launched by the council that have contributed to pupil's success and also details new ways to encourage and support schools to develop further.

Councillor Tim Pollard, cabinet member for children, families and learning, said: "The educational performance of our young people is one of the council’s highest priorities, so I am delighted these latest figures show that we’re achieving our targets in such a positive fashion.

"However, despite our successes, we’re never complacent and we expect our schools to show improvements year on year."

Well done to the pupils (and their parents and teachers) who have achieved these top grades. What is clear though, as this story makes clear, the Council can take the credit for what has been done to improve Croydon's schools. If one person was responsible for that, I would suggest it is Tim Pollard. His leadership has really made a difference.
