*The Leading Parent Partnership Award at Oaks Park High School*

At Oaks Park we want to ensure that as a school we work effectively with
our parents and the local community to ensure all of our students success. We
value the support and contribution that parents and carers make to
children’s school life, both within and beyond the classroom.

The Leading Parent Partnership award is founded on research, which shows
that there is a very positive impact on achievement, behaviour and
attendance in schools where parents are supported and therefore engaged in
their children’s learning. Feedback from parents and carers is extremely
important and we want to hear your views and improve our current practice.

*We aim to:*

– improve increased parental involvement in school life
– improve pupil progress
– improve punctuality
– improve attendance
– improve behaviour

We believe that it is important to support parents as their children
transition through or between schools; we want to include all groups of
parents in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own
learning, take steps to ensure that our school is a welcoming,
communicative and friendly place for parents, provide clear and accessible
guidance to help parents support their children’s learning and development,
produce parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links
and provide clear guidance on the responsibilities of parents, school and
pupils, and share this information with parents regularly.

*Overview of the award – *The LPPA provides a coherent framework for us to
follow and deliver effective parental engagement in our school. Overall
this award will help us to work more closely and more effectively with all
of our parents. All of the staff at Oaks Park want the very best for our
pupils, regardless of their background and ability. It has been proven that
effective and positive parent partnerships can have a very real and lasting
impact on improvements in pupil behaviour, attendance and achievement.

*The whole school community – *Research makes it clear that effective
partnership with parents has a major impact on the learning of children and
young people. The LPPA framework and process draws on high-quality research
evidence.

*The Award Process – *There are various stages in the Leading Parent
Partnership award process, these include:

– Preparation of an Action Plan
– Implementation of actions and collecting evidence into a portfolio
– Interim assessment of progress
– Verification of achievement of the award
– Ensuring once the award has been achieved that it is sustainable

We are currently in the preparation of an action plan stage and aim to
achieve this award by December 2019. The award is expected to be achieved
within a maximum of 12-15 months. Within this timescale, the process is
supportive, developmental and progressive, rather than a box-ticking,
target-driven exercise.

*The award objectives are as follows: *

*Objective 1: The school demonstrates a commitment to work towards
achieving the LPPA*

*Objective 2: The school makes and implements effective plans to achieve
and maintain the LPPA*

*Objective 3: The school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place
for parents*

*Objective 4: The school promotes the awareness and participation of all
groups of parents 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*

*Objective 6: The school provides parents with relevant and user-friendly
guidance and information to help them to support their children’s learning*

*Objective 7: The school produces and implements parent-friendly policies
to establish effective home–school links and to improve children’s
attendance, punctuality, progress and positive participation in school*

*Objective 8: The school provides good support for all parents as their
children move through or leave the school*

*Objective 9: The school summarizes its achievements against the LPPA
Objectives and outlines its future plans*
