The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

As part of our ongoing commitment to enhancing effective and positive parent partnerships we are currently undertaking the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA).

The LPPA framework and process draws on high-quality research evidence. Through this award, we aim to increase parental involvement in all aspects of school life including transition, participation, communication, guidance, induction and home-school links.

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.

The LPPA gives schools a coherent framework to deliver effective parental engagement from early years at Mursley and Drayton Parslow with a view to continuing at Swanbourne in the future.

A working party of staff and parents has developed an action plan to guide our progress towards the award. Our first priorities are developing more opportunities for parents to come into school to work alongside their children, and fine-tuning our home/school communication systems. We meet half termly to review and discuss our next steps over coffee and biscuits.

If you are a parent who would like to become involved please contact Lorna Sandmann.

Parent comments Spring term 2017

Mastery Maths

“Very useful. Thank you.  Helpful to understand, better to then help my child.”

EYFS Phonics sessions

“Amazing to see what they can do and know how to support them.”

Reading Breakfast – EYFS & KS1

“Thank-you so much for the reading breakfast this morning.  My little boy was thrilled with being a croissant (his favourite breakfast), and he beemed away with happiness all through the session.  It also certainly encouraged him to read…”

Bring-a-grown up sessions  - Mastery Maths focus

Sample parent feedback:

“Thank you so much for Grown Up day today. It really was an excellent experience, I felt so lucky to be able to see the class do their daily routines, and it really did bring home what a wonderful class they are and how lucky they are to be taught at Drayton. My child seemed delighted and proud to show me what he does at school, so it was a great success for both of us. Thank you”

“The children’s relationships with their teachers appears very special.”

“My daughter enjoys school and it’s so easy to see why….the sheer range of opportunity for learning was awesome.”
