Leading Parent Partnership Award
We are delighted to announce that we are applying for the Leading Parent Partnership Award.
LPPA is a national award that provides us with a valuable framework for continuing school improvement and also gives us recognition for our commitment to working with parents and carers. The long-term benefits of the LPPA include (but are not limited to):
- Increased parent participation and involvement
- Enhanced parents’ support in children’s learning
- Improved communication between home and school
Thank you to all our parents for your support, without your feedback, attendance to events and honest and open conversations, we could not do this. We will continue to work with you to develop our communication and partnership.
If you have any suggestions about helping us to improve then please contact Mr Wilson, who is our LPPA coordinator.
Statement of commitment
At Gable Hall School we want to ensure that as a school we work effectively with our parents and the local community to ensure all of our students success. We value the support and contribution that parents and carers make to children’s school life, both within and beyond the classroom. The Leading Parent Partnership award is based on research, which shows that there is a very positive impact on achievement, behaviour and attendance in schools where parents are supported and therefore engaged in their children’s learning. Feedback from parents and carers is extremely important and we want to hear your views and improve our current practice.
We aim to:
- improve increased parental involvement in school life
- improve pupil progress
- improve punctuality
- improve attendance
- improve behaviour
We believe that it is important to support parents as their children transition through or between schools; we want to include all groups of parents in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own learning, take steps to ensure that our school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents, provide clear and accessible guidance to help parents support their children’s learning and development, produce parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links and provide clear guidance on the responsibilities of parents, school and pupils, and share this information with parents regularly.
