FAILING TO SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL S.444 EDUCATION ACT 1996

At JTS Solicitors we have a number of ongoing prosecutions for failing to send your child to school due to illness or holiday under s.444 of the Education Act 1996. These cases have been adjourned pending the upcoming decision of the Supreme Court in IWC v Platt. If the Supreme Court find in favour of the Respondent then it is hoped that these prosecutions will be withdrawn.

If you are being prosecuted for an education case or require advice on these matters please do not hessite to contact us.
