Leading Parent

Partnership Award

Tweendykes gained the Leading Parent Partnership Accreditation in 2017 (LPPA). We are now actively working towards reaccreditation in Summer 2020.

The LPPA group is committed to developing the partnership between the school, parents and wider agencies. This group is made up of parent governors, school leaders, teachers and school office staff.

Tweendykes recognises that parents play a crucial role in the development of the whole child and is committed to finding out how to better include parents in the fabric of how the school works, working towards a true model of embedded partnership working.
