LPPA (Leading Parent Partnership Award)
Raising achievement by involving parents and carers in the work of our school
Involving yourself in your child’s education is an exciting challenge, with excellent benefits for your child, for you, for the school and for the local community.
Research has identified that, 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 in secondary school can raise achievement by at least 18%. No involvement means low or no qualifications at 16.
We are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. LPPA is a national award that will provide us with a valuable school improvement tool and also give us recognition for our commitment to working with parents.
The LPPA will help us 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
improve communication between home and school.
If you would like to become more involved or want more information, please contact Mr Cullum at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Feedback from Year 8 Parents Evening
The Year 8 Parents Evening was held 3rd May 2023 it was an opportunity for parents and carers to discuss the progress their child is making.
Feedback from parent and carers at the evening brought some very positive comments about their experiences with our School.
- 94% of parents felt the information provided at this parents evening will allow me to support my child’s progress for the remainder of the year.
- 84% of parents felt the school makes them aware of what their child is learning during the year
- 87% of parents felt that the school has high expectations of their child
A significant number of parents also identified that they would like to have a better understanding of how to support their child with their extended learning. This is something that the school will organise for those parents and we will consider how this could be planned into the diary in the future.
