Special Education Needs
Elms School is a mixed, day special school for children who have a combination of behaviour and learning needs. Pupils have a wide-range of learning, behaviour, social and emotional needs and some also experience difficulty with speech and language development. Many pupils have experienced repeated failure in their previous schools and as a result have low self-esteem and often a negative attitude towards school and learning.
