Penalty notices for regular non-attendance at school

The Education (Penalty Notice) (Wales) Regulations 2013 and the use of Fixed Penalty Notices for non school attendance came into force from 2nd September 2013.


The Central South Consortium has developed a joint code of conduct to provide clear cross border practices and a consistent approach.

 

New legislation has empowered designated Vale of Glamorgan Council Education Officers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) to the parents of children and young people who have unauthorised absence from school.

 

The issuing of FPNs will remain the responsibility of the Education Welfare Service (EWS) in response to requests made by headteachers, their nominated deputies and the Police.
