Growing Together in God


Parochial Primary School is committed to providing the best education for the children in our care. In order to achieve this, it is really important that we work closely with our families and the local community to create a learning environment that meets the needs of all of our children, develops a life long love of learning and prepares them for the future. 

Research identifies by 7 years old, a parent's influence of their child's learning is 6 times that of their school. Being actively involved in your child's education can raise attainment by at least 18% compared with no involvement which can mean lower level qualifications/ no qualification at GCSE. 

We are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our partnership with parents. This national award is an important aspect of our school improvement plan. 

Our commitment to achieving the LPPA award will ensure many benefits for your children including:

  • Increased parental participation and active involvement in school life. 
  • Continually improved home/ school communications 
  • Improvements in children's attendance, punctuality, behaviour and academic progress. 
  • A collaborative drive to increase and maintain parent friendly events. 

For further information regarding the LPPA at Parochial, our coordinator, Miss Thompson would be happy to help.
