Admissions to special schools in Plymouth, including Longcause, are determined by a Local Authority Single Multi Agency Panel (SMAP). This Panel is made up of Head Teachers and other professionals that are experienced at working with children with a variety of special needs. The Panel considers all evidence submitted as well as family preference.
Longcause is a school for pupils aged 4 - 16 years of age. All the children at Longcause School have a formal Statement / Education Health Care Plan and have their primary need as being Complex Communication Disorder (including Autism) and a moderate learning disability.
Parents / Carers are welcome to visit our School and if a place is later offered we will work with families to ensure that the transition for your child goes smoothly.
