Leading Parent Partnership Award LPPA

In January 2023, BGGS and Lady Royd Primary were visited by an assessor from the LPPA.

We are proud to announce that we achieved this nationally recognised award which has helped us to improve our strategies to engage parents and carer's more fully in every child's learning experience, and is recognition of our commitment to working with parents and carers.

One of the principle criteria of the award is the promotion of, and participation in, life long learning within the school for parents and carers.  It is vital that parents and carers understand and support their child's learning and development.

What are the Benefits of Achieving this Award?

The LPPA will help us achieve these long-term benefits:

  • contribute to improved pupil attendance, punctuality, behaviour and progress
  • increase parent participation and involvement
  • enhance parents’ support in their children’s learning
  • improve communication between home and school.

The LPPA award has been a very thorough but rewarding process.  The assessor was impressed by the levels of engagement demonstrated throughout the process and,  how the LPPA award has been imbedded into the school improvement journey and the school values of Aspire - Suceed - Lead.

  • Staff and Governor commitment to highlight parental engagement as central to everyday practice
