Leading Parent Partnership Award
The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) is a national award that provides a coherent framework through which schools, early years settings and other educational organisations can deliver effective parental engagement from early years to post-16.
We are are delighted to have obtained our award at Little Hill Primary School. We very much believe that in providing the best education for your child we need to work together. We value your feedback and make improvements as needed. Miss C. Worthington is our extended services coordinator and is leading this project for our school.
Raising achievement by involving parents and carers in the work of our school
Improving parent involvement in our school is an exciting challenge, with excellent benefits for the children, the parents and carers, the school and the local community.
Amazingly research identifies at age 7, a parent’s influence on a child’s learning is 6 times that of their school and even at 11 years old, it is 29% greater. Increased involvement 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. It is a national award that has provided 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
- Improved home school communications
