Ash Hill Academy recognised for partnership work with parents

Ash Hill Academy has been rewarded for their excellent work with parents.  The academy was awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA), following two days of external assessment. 

Principal, John Higgins said: " We are delighted that the effective partnerships that we have developed with parents and carers have been recognised in this award.  The relationship between home and school is vital to our students' success, so we are proud to have been told that we are demonstrating high standards in this area. I would like to say a big thank you to all parents and carers who have been involved in this process and, in particular, to those who gave up their time to speak to the external assessor.  However, this is not the end of the process;  we still have work to do and we hope that the Parent Partnership Group will further develop the excellent work that is currently taking place"

The LPPA provides a challenging framework to enable schools to strengthen their partnership with parents and carers. It is a developmental process which, through the involvement of parents, aims to enhance children life chances at all stages from nursery to secondary.
