The number of fines from unauthorised absence in Cornwall’s schools
Following on from my previous post on unauthorised absence and the rules parents and carers can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice; I thought it would be good to inform you on the actual numbers of parents issued in Cornwall with a FPN and the total amount levied.
The number of parents and carers issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) is ZERO*. So if no fines, no levies.
The Council’s stance on this is it wants to work with schools and parents / carers to make sure children attend school so they get the education they deserve.
*As correct 6th August.
