Leading Parent Partnership Award

What is the LPPA?

The LPPA is a nationally recognised award which is achieved by schools who work closely with the parent/carers of their pupils.  LPPA stands for ‘Leading Parent Partnership Award’.

At Brookhurst Primary School we value the support and contribution that parents and carers make to children’s school life, both within and beyond the classroom.  Research has shown that when a child is supported at home, their learning outcomes can increase by 18%.  We are passionate about building relationships with you.  We want you and your family to feel welcome and included in your child’s primary school years.  Our door is always open.

The benefits for the children:
  • It is easier for children to learn when they get encouragement from home
  • They will do better and achieve more when their parents are involved
  • Their concerns can be sorted out quicker when their parents have a positive relationship with school staff
  • They are happy when their parents are enjoying events in the school
  • Provides them with a sense of security
The benefits for parents:
  • Their children do better when they are involved
  • They are better able to help and encourage their children

  • Parents can build their own confidence and skills
  • Parents get reassurance that their children are receiving a good education
  • They gain a better understanding of the school
  • They see how their child relates to other children and teachers
The benefits for the school:

  • Parents contribute their time, so together parents and teachers are able to do more activities with pupils than teacher can do on their own
  • Pupils attainment and behaviour improve
