About First Base Ipswich Academy

We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to you from all the staff at First Base Ipswich Academy.

First Base Ipswich Academy is a Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 pupil referral unit in Suffolk.

First Base Ipswich Academy is an outstanding, thriving, happy school where everyone is included and supported to achieve their best. Our core values of respect, engagement, resilience, success and reflection are at the heart of everything we do. Our children learn these values and are supported to develop positive and confident attitudes towards their learning, their peers and adults.

We have a dedicated and enthusiastic team of people who give their all to ensure that the children are supported and encouraged both academically and socially, emotionally and behaviourally.

We believe that First Base Ipswich Academy is a place where children can learn to enjoy learning and have a positive school experience. Our partnership with parents and carers means that they are regularly updated about their child’s progress and their views are welcomed. We work closely with children’s community schools and other professionals to ensure the best outcomes for our pupil’s futures. Our outreach work plays a vital role in supporting community settings to achieve success with our pupil’s.

At First Base Ipswich Academy we take pride in our focus on promoting inclusion and equality for all.
