Most parents and guardians want to ensure that their children attend school regularly. Of course, there will be occasions when, because of illness or other emergencies, a child cannot go to school. But if a child is absent without the school’s knowledge or consent, the parents could receive a fine. In extreme situations parents can even face imprisonment. Even if a child is truanting without their parent’s knowledge, the school can issue a fixed penalty notice when the child is absent.
If you are having problems ensuring that your child attends school and are worried about the legal implications, our solicitors can offer advice and guidance. There may be good reasons for the absence, in which case we can help you to resolve any disagreements you may be having with the school. If you’re experiencing trouble because your child is truanting, we can offer help to address this too.
