Royds academy has been awarded the LPPA for its continued work in promoting parental engagement. Increasing parental participation in school life leads to improved pupil progress, punctuality, attendance and behaviour. The framework encourages parents to be involved in their children's learning leading to improved outcomes in all aspects of school life.
The LPPA framework is based on six strands:
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.
