About Haringey

Haringey is a fantastic place to live and work – the world in one borough. A place brimming with creativity, personality, radicalism, and community. It is a place where we stand up for each other. A place that is proudly distinctive. We’ll be celebrating all this and more as the “rebel borough” when we are the 2027 London Borough of Culture.

Our history champions change-makers and everyday rebels; revelling in our differences, battling discrimination, championing equality, and doing things our own way. Haringey’s people are a huge asset, with knowledge, expertise, and passion. Our staff members embody our organisational values: Caring, Creative, Courageous, Collaborative and Community-focused. These values keep us looking forward, ambitious for the future, and continuously striving to do our very best for all of our residents.

DIVERSITY: Haringey is the 5th most ethnically diverse borough in the country. Over 65% of residents come from non-White British communities. 190 different languages are spoken in Haringey schools.
OFSTED: We are judged as ‘Overall ‘Good’ for the FIRST TIME in 2023, since the formation of Children’s Service following the 2004 Children Act! Ofsted say that since the last full inspection in 2018, when we were judged as Requires Improvement, “that much of the service is now transformed” and that “the transformation seen is making a positive difference to most children’s lives”.
Haringey had an Area SEND inspection in Feb 2024 of Haringey Local Area Partnership. This was a joint inspection by Ofsted and CQC of services and outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and or disabilities. The inspectors gave Haringey the highest judgement, and found that, “the local area partnership’s special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) arrangements typically lead to positive experiences and outcomes for children and young people with SEND”.
