Raising achievement by involving parents and carers in the work of our school
At Green Gates Academy we are in the process of renewing our Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA).We have now been successful for the last 6 years with being a school with LPPA status. We will look forward to working with all parents/carers in the future to further develop our work with parents/carers whilst working towards renewing our LPPA status. Running parent/carers sessions has not been possible but we hope in the future when the Covid19 restrictions are reduced we can then re-engage with our face to face sessions with parents/carers.
Involving yourself in your child’s education is an exciting challenge, with excellent benefits for your child, for you, for the school and for the local community.
Research has identified that, at age 7, a parent’s influence on a child’s learning is six times that of their school and even at 11 years old, it is 29% greater. Increased involvement can raise achievement by at least 18%. No involvement means low or no qualifications at 16.
We are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. LPPA is a national award that will provide us with a valuable school improvement tool and also give us recognition for our commitment to working with parents.
The LPPA will help us achieve these long-term benefits:
contribute to improved pupil attendance, punctuality, behaviour and progress
increase parent participation and involvement
enhance parents’ support in their children’s learning
improve communication between home and school.
