Longspee Academy is a special day school providing education for boys and girls with emotional, social
and mental health difficulties. All pupils are supported by a statement of special educational needs or an
education, health and care plan.
Longspee Academy opened in September 2013. The school is part of the Ambitions Academy Trust. When
its predecessor school, Longspee School, was last inspected by Ofsted, its overall effectiveness was judged to be good overall.
Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil
premium is additional government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals
and children who are looked after by the local authority.
Longspee Academy provides an outreach service offering behaviour support to mainstream schools in
Some pupils join the school at times throughout the year. On occasion, the local authority commissions alternative provision for individual pupils, a bespoke service
to support the work of the school. This was the case at the time of the inspection for a very small number of pupils.
