Leading Parent Partnership Award

The Cavendish High Academy has committed to The Parent Partnership 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 Award has 9 objectives

  • Demonstrate a commitment to work towards achieving the LPPA
  • Make and implement effective plans to achieve and maintain the LPPA
  • Show the school is a welcoming, communicative and friendly place for parents
  • Promote the awareness and participation of all groups of parents/carers in supporting their children’s learning and developing their own learning. In addition, the school holds and actively promotes a programme of opportunities and events for joint parent and child participation
  • Provide a good induction for all new parents/carers
  • Provide parents/carers with relevant and user-friendly guidance and information to help them to support their children’s learning
  • Produce and implement parent-friendly policies to establish effective home–school links and to improve children’s attendance, punctuality, progress and positive participation in school
  • Provide good support for all parents as their children move through or leave the school
  • Summarise our achievements against the LPPA objectives and outlines our future plans.
