A Dagenham primary school has been recognised for the work it does to support the emotional and social development of pupils.
Thomas Arnold Primary School has been named as an ambassador school with excellence in leadership following an assessment by mental health organisation Thrive.
The award recognises schools which are making a positive impact on their pupils and the wider community by having a focus on emotional wellbeing.
Katie Parks, the Rowdown Road school’s Thrive lead and counsellor, said: “We felt really excited when we heard that we had been awarded ambassador school status.
“Everyone has worked hard to get to this point and it’s great to have what we’re doing validated in this way.
