Sadiq Khan congratulated staff at the school in Clissold Road, Stoke Newington.
"Schools for Success was created to celebrate the difference that teachers, teaching assistants, support staff and governors are making every day to support children and reduce inequalities, and this school's inclusive and supportive learning environment is a great example of this," he said.
"London has the best schools and teachers in the country, and by working together we can make sure that no young Londoner is left behind."
