About Elms Bank

Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Candidate,

Elms Bank is a vibrant and forward thinking generic secondary special school based in Bury, Greater Manchester. All our pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Needs. Our age-range is from 11 to 19 and we currently have 284 pupils in school. Our pupils are divided between classes including specialist classes for pupils who are on the autistic spectrum and those with complex needs.

Our intake is mainly from Millwood Primary Special School and a range of mainstream primary schools across Bury. We also accommodate pupils who come from other local authorities. This will depend on the availability of places.

At Elms Bank we embrace the Arts (Drama, Art and Music) and Applied Learning. Both these areas enrich the curriculum for our young people and contribute to making Elms Bank a place where talent can be nurtured and young people can grow in confidence. You will see lots of information on the website about the achievement of our pupils. These areas include our annual school production, our choir with over 50 members and work placements completed by our pupils.

Central to our vision is to work in partnership within a multi-disciplinary approach to meet the needs of all the young people in our school community. We aim to create a safe and happy learning environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. The website contains information about all the people who work in partnership with us. These include a range of services from the National Health Service, the Educational Psychologist and the Local Authority SEN Department.

We have strong links with Millwood Primary School and a range of other local primary schools. We ensure that all our Year 7 pupils have a very positive transition from our feeder schools into Elms Bank. Many of our pupils are able to access inclusion opportunities in mainstream high schools. We value the opportunities created through these links to allow our pupils to grow in confidence both socially and academically.

The staff team are the greatest strength of the school. We aim to provide the highest standards of education and care for our special young people. We plan to meet each pupil’s specific needs. We look for every opportunity to celebrate their achievements.

Please visit our school website for further information.
