Fixed Penalty Notices for Non Attendance at School

Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN’s) have been used in the Vale of Glamorgan since January 2015.  The circumstances in which they are used are as follows:

  • Where a minimum of 10 unauthorised sessions (5 school days) have occurred in the current term (these do not need to be consecutive);
  • Unauthorised absence from school due to a term time holiday and where there is a history of poor attendance;
  • Persistent lateness of more than 10 sessions in the current term i.e. arrived at school after the close of the registration period;
  • Where parent/carers have failed to engage with the school and/or the EWS in attempts to improve attendance but where court sanctions have not been instigated;
  • Where a pupil regularly comes to the attention of the police during school hours for being absent from school without an acceptable reason.
