Statement of Intent

­­In line with the fundamental ethos and values of East Midlands Academy Trust and the aspirations of Northamptonshire Children's Trust, our intent for SEND provision at Northampton International Academy is:

  • To ensure that every child and young person with SEND makes excellent progress, through access to high quality provision within an inclusive all-through setting.
  • To instil in every child and young person the DNA values of collaboration, responsibility, respect, care, excellence, and aspiration which are the building blocks of learning at NIA.
  • To engage with children, young people, and their families to promote early identification and provide high quality support that meets their specific needs.
  • To collaborate on high quality and impactful multi-agency assessments and quality of plans for those who require specialist levels of support.
  • To tailor our whole-school curriculum offer to enhance opportunities for our young people with SEND.
  • To develop smooth transition through each key stage and progression to adulthood for all young people with SEND.


We are committed to providing an appropriate and high-quality education to all the children living in our local area.  We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs and disabilities have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of academy life.

We have a graduated approach to SEND, ensuring early identification of needs and a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress from early years to secondary.
