Nottinghamshire parents to be fined if children miss three days of school each half term

Nottinghamshire parents to be fined if children miss three days of school each half term
 

Parents of children who miss three days of school in a six-week period will be issued with a £60 fine.
Nottinghamshire County Council is expected to maintain its stance on unauthorised absence from school when its children and young people's committee meets tomorrow.
In July 2015, the authority reduced the absence rate that triggers fines from 25 percent, or seven-and-a-half days, to 10 percent, which equates to three days off in six weeks.
Parents must pay the £60 fine in full within 21 days, otherwise it automatically becomes £120 fines.
