What happens if I take my child out of school during term time?

Parents or carers are responsible for making sure that their child attends school.

If a child is absent, their school or a local authority Attendance Improvement Officer will get in touch to find out why.

Fines, also known as a penalty notice, will be issued on behalf of schools in Leeds if a child is absent without reason.

Fines are £60 per child, per parent if paid within 21 days.

If paid between 22 and 28 days, the fine is £120 per child, per parent.

This covers the whole period of the child’s absence and paid in full.

If the fine is not paid, parents or carers face prosecution.
