Attendance Guidance & Information for Parents/Carers






Important Information regarding changes to penalty notices for pupil absence from September 2024.
These changes to regulations are significant so it is important that parents consider the consequences to yourselves before taking leave in term time. It will also be mandatory for schools to share attendance data with the local authority EVERY DAY for their monitoring purposes to ensure that schools use penalty notices to improve attendance.
Thank you for your support with this.
