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 can expect parents and carers to:
- Support their child’s needs to learn by creating the right environment at home for enquiry and discovery
- Enable their child to achieve full attendance
- Encourage their children to promote academy values, such as caring for each other and wearing the uniform correctly

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 visit our policies 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: www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/attendance in the section headed ‘School Attendance, Truancy and Your Child’.
