1) How many fines have been issued to parents for unauthorised absences by children from school since the beginning of this academic year (2013/14) up until this FOI request?
2) What is the total cash value of these fines so far? (if calculating this figure will take too long please supply me the number of fines and the level of each fine and I'll work it out myself).
3) How many of these cases have reached court?
4) Please provide the number of fines and total cash value for the previous educational year (2012/13).
I can advise you that the information you require is held by Essex County Council and not Brentwood Borough Council.
