What is LPPA (Parental Engagement)?

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.

Following analysis of attendance at parent’s evenings and other in school activities in 2015 we started the journey to improve our work with parents and began the LPPA award. Feedback from events can be found on our newsletters, which are sent out half termly and in the ‘You said, we did’ section on our website.

More information about the award can be found here –
