What is LPPA?

The LPPA is a nationally recognised award is a nationally recognised accreditation supporting schools who deliver effective parental engagement. The assessment is made by an external advisor. A team of staff at Sirius Academy North are working to put together evidence in eight categories for the advisor visit in May.

The LPPA consists of evidence-based Objectives for schools to work towards:

  1. The school demonstrates a commitment to work towards achieving the LPPA.
  2. The school makes and implements effective plans to achieve and maintain the LPPA.
  3. The school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents.
  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.
  5. The school provides a good induction for all new parents.
  6. The school provides parents with relevant and user-friendly guidance and information to help them to support their children’s learning.
  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.
  8. The school provides good support for all parents as their children move through or leave the school.
  9. The school summarises its achievements against the LPPA Objectives and outlines its future plans.

  • Staff development, enabling key staff and the school to evaluate and monitor areas of their responsibility, in relation to parental engagement
  • Significant impact in areas such as improving two-way communication, promoting a positive learning environment, improving attendance, punctuality, behaviour and pupil progress.
