Penalty notices

From 27 February 2004 the Children's Services Authority, the Headteacher and the police have the power to issue penalty notices for truancy.

The Department for Education (DfE) have issued guidance which gives details on:

  • what is a penalty notice
  • what if the parent doesn't pay
  • appealing against a penalty notice
