The Leading Parent Partnership Award

This award helps the school to work in partnership with all parents and carers. Increasing parent participation in school life leads to improved pupil progress, punctuality, attendance and behaviour. The framework encourages parents to be involved in their children's learning leading to improved outcomes in all aspects of school life.

At Gatley Primary School 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 to 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

Parent/School Working Parties

Over the course of the academic year 2021/22, parents were invited to work with the school to support in the development of a Communication Strategy and Home School Agreement. Playing an instrumental role in the development of the strategy, parents were able to work collaboratively with staff and governors to develop a strategy with the aims of:

  • creating clear lines of communication between school and home
  • setting clear standards for responding to communication from parents/carers
  • helping parents/carers reach the member of school staff who is best placed to address their specific query or concern so they can get a response as quickly as possible
  • setting clear expectations for parents, teachers and pupils through the development of the Home School Agreement
