Education Penalty Notices


If your child is absent for 5 consecutive days (10 sessions) or more we will require you to bring into school some medical evidence when they return. This can be in the form of a doctor’s note, prescription or even a sticky label from a prescription. This must be produced to validate your child’s absence otherwise the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and could trigger an Education Penalty Notice being issued.
