The Leading Parent Partnership Award gives schools a coherent framework to deliver effective parental engagement from early years to post-16. Through this award, schools can meet a number of longer term success criteria, such as improved pupil progress, punctuality, attendance and behaviour and increased parental involvement in school life. The LPPA is awarded to educational organisations who can demonstrate:
    • Transition – Support parents as their children transition through or between schools
    • Participation – Include all groups of parents in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own learning
    • Communication – Take steps to ensure that the school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents
    • Guidance – Provide clear and accessible guidance to help parents support their children’s learning and development
    • Induction – Provide clear guidance on the responsibilities of parents, school and pupils, and share this information with parents as a key part of the induction process
    • Home–school links – Produce parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links
