Leading Parent Partnership Award

Selly Oak Nursery School has always valued its partnership with Parents and Carers. We decided to work towards the Leading Parent Partnership Award.

The Framework of Objectives

Each element of the LPPA Programme is based around the 10 Objectives of the LPPA Framework. These are the key areas through which high quality parent partnership is delivered in LPPA schools and other educational settings. In brief they are:

Objective 1: Commitment - Commitment of all key partners: school or setting staff; parents and carers; governors (or the equivalent); pupils and students and relevant external partners.

Objective 2: Planning - Planning to deliver and maintain the LPPA.

Objective 3: Welcome and communications - Ensuring a welcoming environment and communication systems that respond to parent/carer needs.

Objective 4: Lifelong learning for parents and carers - Provision of learning opportunities for parents to support their child’s and their own learning.

Objective 5: Enrichment activities – joint parent and child learning - A programme of enrichment opportunities that encourage parents and children to enjoy learning together.

Objective 6: Induction - Induction of parents and carers when their children join the school or setting.

Objective 7: Information and guidance - To enable parents and carers to support their children’s learning.

Objective 8: Policies - Consultation and family-friendly policies to support pupil and student learning and development.

Objective 9: Transition - Engagement of parents and carers when their children move on to the next stage of education, training or employment.

Objective 10: Evaluation - Each Objective is broken down into a number of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that encourage a systematic approach to achieving the Award.
