Any unauthorised leave of absence of 5 days and over (10 sessions) will be subject to a fixed penalty notice. If you choose to take a further leave of absence after a fixed penalty notice has been issued, then this will result in prosecution. Currently the penalty is £60 per child per parent.
The school sets an attendance and punctuality target of 96%.
