How has the LPPA helped Outwood Academy Adwick?
“The LPPA process has helped us focus on identifying the fundamental areas of staff and teacher relationships that need a change at a whole school level. This focus has then let us plan, both strategically and practically, to improve how the school meets parents’ needs so they in turn help their children’s learning. This, linked with our new mentoring systems, has led to a significant rise in standards across the school over the period.”
