Support for Parents & Carers
We believe that education is a cooperative effort among the home, the school, and the community and our team firmly believe that this cooperative effort can only be effective if all adults who surround a child share the same commitment and focus in helping them to realise and achieve their goals. Therefore, we have created this page as a hub of useful information, resources and links to help you in supporting your child’s academic, social and emotional development.
The information contained here is only the beginning of the resources available to help you support your child. As always, if you have any concerns or require any further support or information, please visit the main office or make an appointment to see your child’s class teacher.

What is the Leading Parent Partnership Award?
The LPPA is a nationally recognised award achievable by schools who work very closely with the families of their pupils and consists of ten evidence-based objectives which schools must meet to attain the award. The assessment is made by an external advisor.
In February 2019 an assessor from The Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) visited our school.
We are proud to announce we achieved this nationally recognised award which looks at how well we work with parents and carers, how welcoming the school is and how we support parents in helping their child. It was a very thorough but rewarding process. The assessor was impressed by how well we communicate and support our families, our induction and transition procedures, and by the fact that LPPA is embedded in the School Development Plan.
Boundary Primary School is proud of its working relationships with parents and carers; we want families to feel comfortable, supported and happy to contact, visit and spend time in school working in partnership with our staff.
Thanks to the parents who gave up their time to speak with the assessor and to our pupils, who, as always, spoke with enthusiasm about their school.
