Leading Parent Partnership Award
Here at Green Gates we are proud of our working relationships with parents and carers. However, as a school, we are always keen to develop many more aspects of our home-school partnership. We firmly believe that a parent’s/ carer's involvement in their child’s learning really does make a difference and here at Green Gates we are committed to giving our parents the tools and support that they need to help their child to achieve their full potential.
Over the next year, we shall be working towards achieving a national award called the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). This award looks at how well we work with parents and carers, how welcoming the school is, and how we support parents and carers in helping their child to learn. We aim to improve communication with parents and the community, support parents and children to extend their learning and to encourage a greater input and more involvement of parents in school life. You can find out more about the Leading Parent Partnership Award via the LPPA website: www.lppa.co.uk.
Several people are involved in achieving the award including the Headteacher, School Governors, Parents and Staff.
As part of the process, we have completed an action plan which details how we intend to get even better. A copy of the action plan can be found here:
