Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

Castle Wood are proud to partner with parents in building relationships which support not only the children but also the Castle Wood community. As such we have committed to take part in an awards programme with Optimus Awards, Leading Parent Partnership. 


Raising achievement by involving parents and carers in the work of our school


Involving yourself in your child’s education is an exciting challenge, with excellent benefits for your child, for you, for the school and for the local community.

Research has identified that, at age 7, a parent’s influence on a child’s learning is six times that of their school and even at 11 years old, it is 29% greater. Increased involvement can raise achievement by at least 18%. No involvement means low or no qualifications at 16.

We are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. LPPA is a national award that will provide us with a valuable school improvement tool and also give us recognition for our commitment to working with parents.

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.
