Leading Parent Partnership Award

Raising Achievement by Ensuring Effective Parental Engagement in our School

We strongly encourage all parents to get involved in your child’s education and play a part in promoting our role in the wider community.

Every child has two main education sources in their lives, their school and their parents. Research shows that parental involvement in their child’s education has a huge impact on their academic outcomes, including their academic grades, their attendance and their career aspirations. Increased involvement can raise achievement by at least 18%.

Parent involvement includes, but is not limited to:

  • Helping your child with their homework
  • Asking your child about their school day
  • Interacting with your child’s reports
  • Attending school events
  • Volunteering at school

Dubai British School Emirates Hills are using the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) to help strengthen our school’s partnership with parents. LPPA is a national award that will provide us with a valuable school improvement tool and also give us recognition for our commitment to working with parents. 

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.

If you would like to become more involved or want more information, please contact us to speak to a member of the SLT through [email protected]
