Almost £30,000 in fines handed to Grimsby-area parents for unauthorised school absences



Almost £30,000 in fines have been handed out to parents in North East Lincolnshire for their children's unauthorised school absences.
Figures obtained by law firm Simpson Millar through a Freedom of Information request have revealed that more than 114,000 fines were issued to parents in the 2015/2016 school year across England.
If a school notifies the local council that a child has had unauthorised absence, the council can issue the parents with a £60 fixed penalty notice which rises to £120 if it isn't paid within 21 days.
