Acorn Free School

Acorn Free School

This new Lincoln school asked for our help when local residents objected to its opening because of its work with children at risk of exclusion.

We directly addressed concerns in a leaflet delivered to homes in the area. At the same time, we ensured the school’s side of the story was heard by arranging more balanced media coverage. Acorn Free School is now well established and accepted in the local community.

“We required rapid responses to a very challenging group of people who were generating negative publicity. The support from Arch Communications was invaluable. Within a week we had favourable press coverage, within three weeks even a positive TV interview.”
