Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)
At Lostock Primary School, working with parents and carers is our priority. Our ‘Lostock Family’ only works at its best when staff, children, parents and governors ‘aim high’ together.
The Leading Parent Partnership Award has been promoting excellence in parent partnership in schools and other educational settings since 2003. Now it is also contributing to schools’ inspection successes, as Ofsted presents new challenges in its requirements for parental engagement. The LPPA received recognition from the DfES in 2005 following an evaluated pilot project, and now over 800 schools and educational settings are involved. The programme is delivered by trained LPPA advisers and high standards are maintained through a consistent quality assurance process.
The Leading Parent Partnership Award is valid for 3 years from the date of successful Final Verification.
The re-assessment process involves:
- Completion of a re-assessment self-evaluation exercise about 6 months prior to re-assessment, with feedback given from the LPPA re-assessor.
- Maintaining a mini-portfolio of evidence to demonstrate that parent partnership has been sustained and developed during the 3-year LPPA period.
- A full day visit from the re-assessor to determine whether the award standard has been maintained.
