Terms and Conditions

  1. If a child of compulsory school age who is a registered pupil at a school fails to attend regularly at the school, or fails to attend regularly at alternative educational provision, the parent is guilty of an offence under S.444(1) Education Act 1996.
  2. The Penalty Notice gives you the opportunity to pay a fine instead of being prosecuted for the offence given. The amount of the penalty is £60/£120 in accordance with the time limits set out on your notice and no further action will be taken if the penalty is paid.
  3. Paying the notice discharges your liability for the period.
  4. Penalty Notices are specific to the individual they are issued to, not the household. It is your responsibility to ensure the correct Invoice Number is entered and to pay the correct amount.
