Parents can be fined by the local authority for taking their child on holiday during term time without the consent of the school. The Local Authority’s decision to issue a fixed Penalty Notice is based on information submitted by the school. Triggers for the fixed Penalty Notice will be:

18 sessions (9days) of unauthorised absence in the last 6 weeks

5 consecutive days of unauthorised absence

An accumulation of unauthorised absence leading to an attendance of 90% or less.

It is important that parents understand that the initial fixed penalty notice of £60 is issued to each parent for each child. A two-parent family with two children would be fined £240.
