LPPA Information

LPPA Leading Parent Partnership Award
This academic year, we are applying for the LPPA award, in recognition of work that we undertake with parents and carers. Senora Mason and Mr Gallon are the lead professionals applying for this award.

At Farne we are committed to investing in our parents and carers, both for themselves and ultimately for the achievement of our pupils. We have decided to work towards obtaining the LPPA, Leading Parent Partnership Award, to help us recognise our current good practice and highlight areas for development. As we develop and refine the systems in school, from induction to transition, we will be seeking your input and views. In the New Year we will audit current provision, policies and procedures with a view to amending practice where necessary. Updates as to how we are progressing will be posted on the website and in our Farne Primary Newsletters.
