In January 2019, there was a local review of Fixed Penalty Notices issued for unauthorised leave in term time (holidays). It is important that we keep you as parents and carers informed.
Parents who do not pay Fixed Penalty Notices for unauthorised leave in term time now face considerably higher fines in Court than previously – often over £500 and as high as £824. Parents also gain a criminal record.
To make you aware of the process and how to minimise the impact on your family we provide the following guidance:
We appreciate that family time or a holiday can be a positive experience and we also recognise that young people should have the opportunity to enjoy uninterrupted learning time each year, including being present at the start of the academic year. Regular school attendance is essential not only for academic progress, but in forming and maintaining friendships and feeling settled in school.
If you have any further questions regarding this, please speak to your child’s school in the first instance.
