The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) is a National Award that provides a coherent framework through which schools, early year’s settings and other educational organisations can deliver effective parental engagement from early years to post 16.

Schools have to work towards meeting ten different objectives before they can achieve the award.


The Framework of Objectives

Each element of the LPPA Programme is based around the 10 Objectives of the LPPA Framework. These are the key areas through which high quality parent partnership is delivered in LPPA schools and other educational settings. In brief they are:

Objective 1: Commitment
Commitment of all key partners: school or setting staff; parents and carers; governors (or the equivalent); pupils and students and relevant external partners.

Objective 2: Planning
Planning to deliver and maintain the LPPA.

Objective 3: Welcome and communications
Ensuring a welcoming environment and communication systems that respond to parent/carer needs.

Objective 4: Lifelong learning for parents and carers
Provision of learning opportunities for parents to support their child’s and their own learning.

Objective 5: Induction
Induction of parents and carers when their children join the school or setting.

 Objective 6: Information and guidance
To enable parents and carers to support their children’s learning.

Objective 7: Policies
Consultation and family-friendly policies to support pupil and student learning and development.

Objective 8: Transition
Engagement of parents and carers when their children move on to the next stage of education, training or employment.

Objective 9: Evaluation
Each Objective is broken down into a number of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that encourage a systematic approach to achieving the award.

Marlborough Infant and Nursery School achieved the award in 2011. The award lasts for three years. We were re-assessed for the award and we regained this in July 2014.  We are now gathering evidence to ensure we renew the award in September 2017.
