The Local Authority introduced Fixed Penalty Notices from Sept 2015 for pupils who have more than 10 days of Unauthorised Absences, and Fixed Penalty Warning Notices for pupils with 5+ days of Unauthorised Absences.
The following absences are Unauthorised Absences:
· Absence caused by either a sibling or relatives illness.
The following absences are Authorised absences, if we have been informed:
Other exceptional circumstances may also be authorised, please contact the office for further information as and when required.
Our aim is to avoid any Fixed Penalty notices for our parents, and to minimise pupil absence. If you require support please contact Mrs. Ann Armstrong (Attendance Officer) at school.
