We are pleased to have signed up with the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). The LPPA is beneficial for all schools - those that have extensive good practice in parent partnership, as well as those that require more in-depth support in this area. You can find out more about them http://www.lppa.co.uk/.

We are keen to find out what we are already doing in terms of parental engagement and how we can improve and develop. We will begin the process by meeting with an advisor who will conduct an audit. The advisor will be here in September and we will let you know the date once it has confirmed. Once this has been completed we will receive an action plan and training where necessary. Throughout this process we will gather evidence for our LPPA portfolio and at the end there will be an assessment. Following final verification we hope to achieve the LPPA award which is valid for 3 years. If you have any feedback that might be useful for this process please let us know. Is there anything we are doing well in terms of parent participation and what we could do better. Please email any thoughts to Karen Tuck on [email protected]
