Fixed Penalty Notices issued in relation to unauthorised absence from school
Central Bedfordshire Council have made a significant change in their practice in issuing Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN). Fixed Penalty Notices will be issued to parents whose children have 10 sessions (5 whole days), or more, of unauthorised absences within a twelve week period, whether it be for consecutive days e.g. holiday or sporadic absences. A FPN is a £60 fine issued to parents, if the fine is not paid within 21 days it increases to £120. If after 28 days a fine has not been paid, parents can be prosecuted and fined up to £1000. Please help us to help you by ensuring your child is at school on a daily basis. Thank you for your support in this matter.
