The Department for Education (DfE) has announced plans for the new school, which will provide more than 300 full-time places for children with complex SEND needs including autism, social emotional and mental health needs.  

The school will be an all-through school for both boys and girls aged between 3 and 19 and will help address the growing numbers of SEND places needed in Walsall.   

The DfE will fund and build the free school, with the location and timescales for opening to be shared at a future date.
