SCDA is a referral based Education provider. As such we do not have an admissions process in the same way a mainstream provider might. Students who are not accessing Education are referred to SCDA by Devon County Council. Your son/daughter can be referred to SCDA for the following reasons:

  1. They have been Permanently Excluded (PEX) from their current school.
  2. They are awaiting a Special School place to become available and SCDA has been deemed able to meet their needs in the interim
  3. They are currently too unwell to attend school on Medical grounds

Mainstream schools can also purchase time at SCDA for those students who are at serious risk of Permanent Exclusion as a preventative measure.
