Leading Parent Partnership Award Engage (LPPA)

We are extremely pleased to have been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award Engage (LPPA). This award acknowledges our commitment to engage with all parents/carers at all levels and also specifically focuses on our engagement of families whose need for support is greatest.

We continually strive to evaluate, celebrate and improve our parental engagement and the fact that we were the first school in the country to gain LPPA Engage is a fantastic achievement and recognition of this. If you would like more information on LPPA, please follow the link: http://www.lppa.co.uk/

Our work with parents is of the utmost importance and so we are constantly seeking to review our provision in this respect.  If you are interested in contributing to developments at the Academy then please don’t hesitate to make contact with a view to attending one of our regular Parents Forum events.  For details of the next Parent Forum event please refer to the calendar section of the website.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
