Betty Layward Primary School has been recognised for helping low-attaining pupils make good progress with their learning.
The school was honoured for the work it carries out to reduce educational inequality and to help children who were previously behind in their studies achieve exceptional results, at a Schools for Success awards ceremony at City Hall.
The Schools for Success programme was created by London Mayor Sadiq Khan in 2017 to improve the support given to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
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."
