Information for Parents

In light of the High Court ruling on Friday 13th May re fining/prosecuting parents for taking children on holiday during term time, the interim arrangements are in place.

We are presently halting the prosecution process for parents taking unauthorised leave of absence. This means any cases that you have already sent to us or are in the post will not be processed. Those cases for which we have already set court dates are being withdrawn. Please do not send through any documents for leave of absence, however irregular attendance fines and prosecutions will stand and will still be processed. My recommendation is that until the ruling changes, if parents request a leave of absence you ascertain whether an exceptional circumstance or not and authorise or not accordingly. I would suggest that you add to your documentation and websites the following:

‘the Council is reviewing its practice with regards to the issuing of Penalty Notices for term time holiday absence as a matter of priority and is seeking urgent guidance from the DfE.’

Some parents may ask if they are going to receive refunds from fines already paid the response to this is ‘the Council is taking urgent legal advice on the implications of the ruling.’

Obviously I will keep you updated with information as and when I receive it.

Regards

Anne
