A new primary special school in Sandwell

Sandwell Council is inviting bids from proposers interested in developing a new primary special school in Sandwell. The school will cater for 126 children with special educational needs and disabilities with a focus on children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD). The age range will be from 5 to 11. 

A specialist free secondary school for ASD pupils has already been agreed but there is a need for a primary equivalent as current specialist provision is already near to capacity.
