About Us

Elm Tree Primary Academy is a school for autistic children from Reception to Year 6 who have additional learning needs. Once full, Elm Tree will support 126 pupils from across Sandwell.

Our mission is to provide an inclusive, holistic provision that will enable all members of the school community to attain their full potential, in an encouraging and supportive environment.

The physical environment will take into careful consideration the sensory needs of our children ensuring the school has adequate space for discrete subject areas, break out spaces, therapy spaces, sensory support, outdoor areas and life skills.

We will provide a total communication environment where verbal language, gesture and sign, body language, visuals, symbols, objects and sounds are used and understood, providing optimal opportunity for communication development.

Elm Tree is due to open in September 2022.  Proud to be part of the Victoria Academies Trust family.
