Parent Information

 At Malcolm Arnold Academy we believe that a strong partnership with parents is extremely important. Parents and carers can expect certain standards from the academy, and in return we ask that parents and carers support us with key policies.

The academy's complaints policy aims to ensure all complaints are listened to, explored and responded to quickly and effectively, and dealt with by an appropriately designated person. The academy takes seriously any concern or complaint as we believe tackling issues at the earliest possible stage will improve our academy, enhance learning, prevent issues escalating and be in everyone's interests. For more information, please download our Complaints Policy on the left-hand side of the page.


Absences during term time

We would like to remind parents and carers of children at the academy that they have a legal obligation regarding school attendance.  Usually this does not pose a problem.  However, in line with national expectations, Malcolm Arnold Academy is not authorising holidays during term-time. 

A holiday taken during term time can result in a Penalty Notice being issued by the local authority imposing a fine on parents.  Details of the authority’s Code of Conduct relating to issue of Penalty Notices can be found on their website:  in the section headed ‘School Attendance, Truancy and Your Child’.
