Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

At Minster-in-Sheppey Primary School, we are proud in achieving the Leading Parent Partnership Award. We value parental engagement and the positive impact the home-school relationship has in regards to children's school life, with a focus on wellbeing and learning. ​


What is the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)?
