Welcome from the Head Teacher

I’m Beth Barnsley, and I will be the Head Teacher when Elm Tree opens in September 2022.  The school will be built on Friar Park Road, Wednesbury, in Sandwell and I look forward to growing a school where pupils, parents, and staff can be proud to be part of the Elm Tree family.

We want our pupils to be seen and heard as valued members of their community, and we believe our pupils can and will achieve amazing things.  Our curriculum will inspire each pupil to progress in the areas of independence, communication, and social development, preparing them for the next phase of education.
