Parents in School
Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)
We were very proud to be awarded with our original Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) in February 2011 and we are very happy that our good work has been recognised and our award was renewed for a further three years.
While working to obtain the award Netherbrook Parent Group worked as the working party with their views and opinions being highly valued. Since then, we have continued to follow the guidelines and this as enabled us to strengthen our partnership with parents and enhance children’s life chances at all stages.
We invite parents into school at every opportunity. Each week we run Family/Team Reading sessions from Foundation Stage to Year 2, Praise Assemblies, We also offer parent workshops, Inspire sessions, coffee mornings and parents evenings.
