Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
So how many days in the last year has she taken off?Alex
Ok, then yes you can fight this.
You may remember the recent case in the High Court where Magistrates had ruled that Jon Platt had no case to answer as, overall, his daughter had attended school regularly. If that is the case there is no case to answer and this is the current law.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You would need to dispute the penalty. They can then chose whether to take it to Court.
I would hope in light of the decision above would mean they do not take it further.
