Education Penalty Notice

The Education Welfare Service may issue a parent with a Formal Warning, an Education Penalty Notice (EPN) or decide to prosecute if a child is persistently absent over a minimum period of 16 weeks.

 If a parent is issued with an EPN, they risk receiving a fine from Brent Council of £120 if paid within 28 days. 

Fines for unauthorised term time leave are issued to each parent for each absent child. Failure to pay the notice may result in a parent being prosecuted in court for their child’s unauthorised absence. 

For further information a copy of our attendance policy is available to read via the school's website or you can find the Education Welfare Service’s Non-School Attendance, Education Penalty Notices, Local Code of Conduct on Brent Council’s website www.brent.gov.uk
