5. Payment of penalty notices
5.1 Payment of a penalty notice is £120 within 28 days with a reduction to £60 if paid within 21 days.
5.2 Payment in full discharges a parent/carer’s liability for the period in question.
5.3 The Local Authority will provide the school with confirmation of the payment of the penalty fee although it retains this revenue to cover the costs of issuing or enforcing notices.
