MacIntyre is a leading national charity, highly respected and committed to setting standards and increasing choice. It was established in 1966 by a parent's determination to provide education for his disabled child. In 2012, MacIntyre Academies Trust was set up as a separate organisation to add to this work.
MacIntyre’s philosophy has always been to welcome all and service delivery is underpinned by what it calls its DNA. Through the promotion of Great Interactions, Positive Behaviour Support and Person Centred Approaches, MacIntyre aims to give each and every individual a life that makes sense to them, with a level and style of support of their choosing.
With a long and established track record of delivering outstanding provision for children with special educational needs, MacIntyre actively supports joint working between the charity and the Trust. As sponsor, MacIntyre provides the Trust with a voice on national issues and ongoing support internally.
