Leading Parent Partnership Award

Joint working between the home and the school led to much better outcomes for pupils; in particular, this helped pupils with special educational needs/disabilities, those with low attendance or who were potentially vulnerable in other ways.

The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) is an exciting national award. It provides a framework, which will help to more fully involve parents and carers in every child’s learning experience.

One of the principle criteria of the award is the promotion of and participation in lifelong learning within school for parents and carers. It is vital to a child’s development that his or her parent or carer understands and supports their child’s learning in their education. This can reinforce their relationships with their child and the school as well as developing their own skills and knowledge.

LPPA offers long term benefits such as improved pupil attendance and behaviour and increased involvement and support. We hope to improve communication between school and home and nurture the child / parents relationships by highlighting the benefits of adult learning and the positive impact this can have on a child’s own education.
