Leading Parent Partnership Award

Don Valley Academy is currently working towards achieving the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). The LPPA provides a framework for effective parental engagement. This award will help us to work more closely and more effectively with our parents. Effective and positive parent partnerships can have very real and lasting impacts on improvements in pupil behaviour, attendance and achievement. Research makes it clear that effective partnership with parents has a major impact on the learning of children and young people. The LPPA framework and process draws on high-quality research evidence

There are five stages in the LPPA process and there is a strong thread of evaluation throughout:

  • school self-evaluation
  • preparation of LPAA Action Plan
  • implementation of actions and portfolio building
  • interim assessment of progress
  • verification leading to achievement of the award.

Key Objectives

  • To ensure the Academy is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents.
  • To promote the awareness and participation of all groups of parents in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own learning. In addition, to actively promote a programme of opportunities and events for joint parent and child participation.
  • To provide a good induction for all new parents.
  • To provide parents with relevant and user-friendly guidance and information to help them to support their children’s learning.
  • To implement parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links and to improve children’s attendance, punctuality, progress and positive participation in school.
  • To provide good support for all parents as their children move through or leave the school.
