School celebrates second award
Our congratulations go to Lomeshaye Junior School, Nelson who have been accredited with the Leading Parent Partnership Award for the second time.
The award was first given to the school in 2010 when it demonstrated good links with families and parents.
Since then, the school has invested time, money and expertise in making links with parents and the families of children in the school. Sofia Safdar, the school’s parental involvement officer, has worked with and encouraged families and members of the local community to become involved in school life, enhancing their own lives, career opportunities and learning how to help their children at home.
The progress the school has made in this area has been vast and the award report commends its endeavours as being “outstanding”. The assessors said: “The school’s approach to engagement and partnership with parents through the enrichment programme and wider family learning is of a gold standard.” They also commented on the effect the school’s work has had on families, noting “the impact is apparent in both the parents’ own self confidence and the progress of their children.”
Headteacher Mrs Angela Pleasants said: “As a dedicated team we will continue to develop new strategies and initiative to engage our parents, to provide life long learning for them and to reap the benefits this has on our pupils’ progress and performance.”
