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.

Feedback from Year 7 Tutor Evening Evaluation

The Year 7 Tutor Evening was held in October 2022 as an opportunity for parents and carer to ask questions about how their child has settled into The Park Community School.

Feedback from parent and carers at the evening brought some very positive comments about their experiences with our School.

  • 95% of parents felt that the partnership between parents and school was good or very good.
  • 100% of parents felt that the reception they receive when they visit school is good or very good.
  • 95% of parents felt that ‘the partnership between parents and the school in helping them to support their child’s learning (parents evenings, reports, targets, individual meetings etc) was good or very good.

Feedback from Year 7 Parents’ Evening 2023

The Year 7 Parents’ Evening was held in April. One piece of feedback given was around how we can increase the contact with your child’s tutor, possibly with a slot on Parents’ Evenings. This is a really good idea and, although not possible to do at the moment, we will consider how this could be planned into the diary in the future
