Leading Parent Partnership Award

Raising Achievement by involving parents in the work of our school.

In 2013 we successfully achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award in recognition of the excellent partnership with have with our parents

Involving parents in their child’s education is an exciting challenge, with excellent benefits for the child, the parents, the school and the local community.

Amazingly research identifies at age 7, a parent’s influence on a child’s learning is six times that of their school and even at 11 years old, it is 29% greater. Increased involvement can raise achievement by at least 18%.

We used the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. It is a Department of Education endorsed award, which provides us with a valuable school improvement tool and also gives us national recognition for our commitment to working with parents.

The LPPA helps us to achieve these long term benefits:

  • Contribute to improved pupil attendance, punctuality, behaviour and progress.
  • Increase parent participation and involvement.
  • Enhance parents’ support in their children’s learning.
  • Improved home school communications.
