Parents given £50 fixed penalty fines
Eight fixed penalties have been handed out for truancy over the past year – but nobody has been prosecuted.
Education Minister Tim Crookall was asked about the issue in a question for written answer during this week’s Tynwald sitting.
He said since November last year, eight Fixed Penalty Notices had cost people £50 per parent per child.
But he confirmed nobody had been taken to court over their children’s failure to attend school in the last 12 months.
