Leading Parent Partnership Award Vision Statement

Charlton Park Academy’s pursuit of the Leading Parent Partnership Award is a commendable effort to foster a collaborative environment with families and the community.

To meet the award’s criteria, the academy must demonstrate a commitment to developing positive relationships with parents, which includes supporting parents as their children transition through educational stages, and actively involving all parent groups in their children’s learning journey.

Effective communication strategies are essential, ensuring the school is perceived as a welcoming and communicative space. Providing clear guidance to parents on how they can support their children’s learning and development is also crucial. Moreover, establishing robust home-school links and producing parent-friendly policies will contribute significantly to achieving this award.

It is important to maintain a detailed portfolio of evidence showcasing these efforts, including a signed statement of commitment, records of working group memberships, and documented strategies for communication with key partners. By meeting these objectives, Charlton Park Academy can enhance its engagement with families and solidify its role as a supportive educational community.
