Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) is the national recognised award that helps schools to work in partnership with all parents and carers. The award hopes to increase parental participation in school life, which could help to improved pupil’s progress, punctuality, attendance and behaviour; ultimately leading to improved outcomes in all aspects of school life.
The LPPA provides a coherent framework for us to follow and deliver effective parental engagement in our school. Overall, this award will help us to work more closely and more effectively with all of our Parents/Carers. It is our school ethos that we want the very best for our pupils and it has been proven that effective and positive Parent/Carer partnerships can have a very real and lasting impact.
The award is expected to be achieved within a maximum of 12-15 months and we started the award process in January 2021. Within this timescale, the process is supportive, developmental and progressive, rather than a box-ticking, target-driven exercise. A huge thank you to those parents who completed the Parent Evaluation Form in March 2021. The feedback gave us an indication of where we needed to improve and based on this feedback, and the relaxing of Covid restrictions, we have reintroduced open afternoons, courses offered to parents via the MIDAS Centre, fundraising events to improve our facilities, coffee mornings/afternoons and events for parents in the evening – details to follow shortly!
