Leading Parent Partnership

Dear Parent,

Abbey Manor College is proud to introduce the Leading Parent Partnership Award


Leading Parent Partnership Award – LPPA

What is the Leading Parent Partnership Award?

At Abbey Manor College we want to do everything we possibly can to help parents and families to support their children. We believe that when schools and parents work together in partnership to support the learning and welfare of young people the student is more likely to have a positive experience of school and more successful outcomes in terms of both learning and wellbeing.

The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)is a nationally recognised award achievable by schools who work very closely with the families of their pupils.  The assessment for the Award is made by an external advisor.

We are using the LPPA to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. The work will provide us with a valuable school improvement tool and also give us recognition for our commitment to working with parents.

During this Award process we hope to build on the many strengths we already have with parents.  We want to provide opportunities for parents to have a voice in everyday school life. 

Work to achieve this award started in October 2021 and hope to achieve the accreditation during academic year in May 2022.

The LPPA aims to improve Parent Partnership across six areas




Supports parents as their children transition through and between schools

Include all groups of parents in supporting their children's learning and developing their own learning

Take steps to ensure that the school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parent



Home School Links

Provide clear and accessible guidance to help parents support their children's learning and development

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

Produce parent-friendly policies to establish effective home-school links


The LPPA consists of ten evidence-based Objectives which schools must meet to get the award:

  1. The school demonstrates a commitment to work towards the Leading Parent Partnership Award.
  2. The school makes and implements effective plans to achieve and maintain the Leading Parent Partnership Award.
  3. The school is a welcoming and friendly place for parents.
  4. The school promotes an awareness of and participation in lifelong learning opportunities available in school and in the community to all groups of parents.
  5. The school holds and actively promotes enrichment opportunities or events for joint parent/child participation.
  6. The school provides good induction for all new parents.
  7. The school provides parents with relevant and user-friendly guidance and information to help them support their children’s learning.
  8. The school produces and implements parent friendly policies to establish effective home school-links and improve pupil/student attendance, punctuality, behaviour and progress and positive participation in school.
  9. The school provides good support for transition for parents when their children leave the school.
  10. The school evaluates performance against the Leading Parent Partnership Award.

What difference will the award make to the work done with families at Abbey Manor College?

It will make our work with families even better.  It will improve our communication and build more activities for families in school.  As you know we are always trying to improve and completing this award will help us do that!

How can families help us gain the award?

  • Read all information that we send out
  • Come along to events we organise
  • Complete any questionnaires we send out as honestly as you can

We are forming an LPPA Working Party. A group which will consist of parents, members of school staff meeting regularly to work on an action plan and gather the evidence needed to gain the award.

We will keep you up to date of our progress!
