Leading Parent Partnership Award - LPPA

At Meadowbank Primary School we want to ensure that as a school we continue to work effectively with our families and local community.  We value the support and contribution that parents and carers make to children's school life, both within and beyond the classroom.  

We are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to reflect on current practice and further strengthen our school 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.

The award is founded on research which shows that there is a very positive impact on achievement, behaviour and attendance in schools where parents are supported and therefore engaged in their children's learning.  Feedback from parents and carers is extremely important and we want to hear your views and improve our current practice.  

We expect to achieve the award within 15 months. The process will be supportive, developmental and progressive will be achieved by meeting the following key performance indicators:

1.  The school demonstrates a commitment to work towards achieving the LPPA.

2. The school makes and implements effective plans to achieve and maintain the LPPA.

3.  The school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents.

4.  The school promotes the awareness and participation of all groups of parents in supporting their children's learning and developing their own learning.  In addition, the school holds and actively promotes a programme of opportunities and events for joint parent and child participation.

5. The school provides a good induction for all new parents.

6.  The school provides parents with relevant and use-friendly guidance and information to help them to support their children's learning.

7.  The school produces and implements parent-friendly policies to establish effective home-school links and to improve children's attendance, punctuality, progress and positive participation in school.

8.  The school provides good support for all parents as their children move through or leave the school.

9. The school summarises its achievements against the LPPA Objectives and outlines it future plans.
