Partnership with families

At HPAPL  we aim to establish a mutually supportive and respectful relationship with all our parents where trust and respect is at the heart of all we do.

We value the unique insight that parents can provide into their children’s learning and acknowledge that learning begins and continues in the home environment. By working in close partnership  we seek to nurture in the children the development of trust, respect, confidence, independence, self-esteem and the desire to learn.

We aim to keep parents and carers very well informed about their child’s learning, progress, well- being, behaviour and attendance. We work in partnership with families in order to help every pupil achieve their full potential.

Each term there are focused workshops to support parents’ understanding about our curriculum and strategies to support children at home. 

Our parents are encouraged to share their views about academy life in a number of ways e.g. we undertake an annual survey, provide feedback forms at our currciculum workshops and regualrly meet with parents formally and informally across the year. We value this feedback and use it to support our continued improvement. Parents may also share their views by visiting http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/

We also have a very dedicated team of staff who work very closely with our parents to:

  • provide pastoral support for pupils and families
  • support and monitor attendance and punctuality providing practical support for families  
  • meet with parents to discuss issues and problems, and running group sessions and workshops for parents at school;
  • advising parents on behaviour strategies and parenting skills;
  • liaising with relevant professionals and individuals, e.g. educational psychologists, the police and other social services;
  • helping with transition activities for parents and learners moving to secondary schools

Low Traffic Neighbourhood

Currently Haringey Council are prosing an LTN which will enforce all vehicles to travel down specific roads in the local area. One of these is Philip Lane which will cause considerable negative consequences to our school and community. We are encouraging as many parents, staff and friends of the school to write to the council. Below is an example letter for you to edit where necessary - the deadline is 15th September 2021.

Friends of Philip Lane

Friends of Philip Lane is run by parents and carers to make sure there are lots of ways our families can meet each other and support the happy, inclusive atmosphere here at Philip Lane. Social and fund raising events organised by Friends of Philip Lane also help to provide those little extras to enhance our children's time at the academy.

We encourage our pupils, including the academy councillors to support the work of Friends of Philip Lane. That way, they can contribute to wider aspects of academy life and develop their creative planning and organisational skills. Events are advertised in the  monthly newsletter, by flyers, our text service and the calendar on this website.

It is vital that parents / carers involved to get involved via Friends of Philip Lane so we can run our annual events like the Winter Fare, Summer Barbeque and Fun Run.

About once per half term, Friends of Philip Lane meet via Coffee Mornings to plan upcoming events. There are also small working groups who organise specific activities. The aim is for each class to have a Friends of Philip Lane parent / carer representative.

Currently the Friends of Philip Lane board consists of Lisa Arghyrou (chair) and Martha Parava (secretary).

If you are interested in becoming involved in any way, Friends of Philip Lane can  be contacted on the following email address: funfopl@gmail.com

Please also feel free to approach any of the board members directly.
