Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

In October 2016, Five Acre Wood achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award. Following a reassessment in January 2021, we have once again achieved the Award.  Thank you to everyone who contributed their views in order to help us achieve this. We feel that it is a very positive reflection of the support we provide to you and the efforts of our staff in working in partnership with you. As a school we see that you are the experts on our children and we truly value your guidance and advice. This award has enabled us to recognise our strengths but also to evaluate where we go next with our work.


Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) – Flagship School

In January 2018, Five Acre Wood School was awarded Flagship status.

The Inclusion Quality Mark is a nationally accredited award which recognises the exceptional inclusion arrangements that Five Acre Wood has in place. It bases its framework around three core areas; the individual pupil, the family and community and the staff. It focuses on educational inclusion, which is about equal opportunities for all pupils and ensuring that the learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matters. Flagship status recognises not only the work going on in school but also the work that the school does to promote inclusion in its widest possible sense to the wider community, actively working with partner schools and supporting schools with the expertise of their staff.

Following a reassessment in November 2023, Flagship School status was achieved for a fifth time.

The school is one of the eight winners from across the UK, in recognition of ‘excellence when it comes to inclusive practice’ and for creating a ‘welcoming school where diversity is cherished and celebrated’.
