Education Secretary visits school of the year.

Education Secretary Justine Greening heard first-hand how the transformation of a school in Romford from the bottom 10% to the top 1% in the country has changed its pupils’ lives.

Broadford Primary School hosted the visit on Thursday 30 November after it was crowned ‘School of the Year’ at the 2017 TES Schools Awards.

Meeting with pupils and teachers, the Education Secretary saw how the school, which rose from Special Measures in 2011 to Outstanding in 2014, gained this prestigious accolade.
