Leading Parent Partnership Award

Hurworth House School has developed positive parent relationships over several years. In January 2023, we signed up to the Leading Parent Partnership Award. This is a national award that provides a coherent framework in which schools, early years settings and other educational organisations can deliver effective parent engagement from early years to post-16.

What does the school have to do to achieve the award?

The school has to meet the nine evidence-based objectives below to achieve the award:

  1. Demonstrate a commitment to work towards achieving the LPPA
  2. Make and implement effective plans to achieve and maintain the LPPA
  3. Show the school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents
  4. Promote the awareness and participation of all groups of parents/carers in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own learning. In addition, the school holds and actively promotes a programme of opportunities and events for joint parent and child participation
  5. Provide a good induction for all new parents/carers
  6. Provide parents/carers with relevant guidance and information to help them support their children’s learning
  7. Produce and implement parent-friendly policies to establish effective home-school links and to improve children’s attendance, punctuality, progress and positive participation in school
  8. Provide good support for all parents as their children move through or leave the school
  9. Summarise our achievements against the LPPA objectives and outlines for our future plan

Schools that achieve the LPPA award report:

  • Improved punctuality, attendance and behavior
  • Improved pupil or student progress
  • Increased parental involvement in consultation and learning activities
  • Increased number and range of parents actively involved with the school

Each term the LPPA working party meet to work through each of the nine objectives and collate evidence for the school portfolio
