From our Spotlight on Attendance campaign in March 2017 the following results were:

  • A Year 8 student was issued with a fixed penalty notice. This was not paid and parent(s) were taken to court where the cost went up from £120 to £300 plus.
  • Year 9 students parent(s) are being taken to court in November
  • Year 10 students Parent(s) are being taken to court in November
  • Year 11 students Parents(s) are being taken to court in November

Update: 26th February 2018:

6 pupils received fixed penalty notices today: Both parents have been issued with fixed penalty for 3 pupils. Then 3 fines have gone to 1 parent for the other 3 pupils.

Birmingham council fine is £60, which rises to £120 if you don’t pay within 21 days.

If you don’t pay the fine after 28 days you may be prosecuted for your child’s absence from school.
