Regular and punctual attendance at school is a legal requirement. It is also an essential obligation that helps pupils to make the most of their education.
If your child is absent from school, without authorisation from the school, you may receive an Education Penalty Notice.
What are the fees?
The Education Penalty Notice fine is:
- £60 if paid within 21 days
- £120 if paid within 28 days
If the fine is not paid it may lead to a court hearing.
