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 can raise achievement by at least 18%. No involvement can mean low or no qualifications at 16 [Prospects 2018].
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 Brown at email@example.com

On Monday 11th July 2022, Andrea Hamshaw from Optimus carried out a rigorous audit of the evidence gathered to achieve the award. She met with Mr Brown (LPPA Coordinator), staff, parents and pupils as part of the verification process to reassess the KPI’s for the Parent Award first awarded in July 2019. Andrea was very impressed by and complimentary about all aspects of school, but particularly the work that we do in collaboration with our parents and carers to improve the lives and learning of our children.
