Attendance

The government have provided new legislation for pupil attendance and in particular taking children out of school for family holidays.

Family holiday requests have been unauthorised by the Head  for some considerable time here at Loddington, however, the new legislation that comes into force in September 2013 means that you will be liable to be fined by the Education Entitlement Service if you take your children out of school in term time for a family holiday.

Please be aware that the initial Fixed Penalty Notice of £60.00 is issued to each parent for each child (two parent family, two children = £240.00).
