School attendance and absence

Your responsibility

You are legally responsible for making sure your child receives a full-time education either at school or through alternative provision such as home education.

Children from 5 to 16 must attend school regularly during term time.

You may be fined or prosecuted if your child is regularly absent without the school’s permission.
