Laisterdyke Parent Partnership
9.30am - 10.30am
The Laisterdyke Parent Partnership (LPP) group provides an opportunity for parents and carers to play an active role in the life of the Academy and for them to express their views on their child's learning and overall health and wellbeing at the Academy.
This forum is for parents and carers to come together, share ideas and put their views forward to the Academy. Parents get support and advice they need to help and encourage their children with their learning.
Parents attending the meeting have visited various departments, having the opportunity to speak to members of staff and pupils.
They were also given the opportunity to sample the Academy dinners and provide feedback which has been implemented.
The group meet fortnightly on a Wednesday at 9.30am.
