The request was successful.

Dear Havering Borough Council,

Dear Havering Borough Council,
Section 444 of the 1996 Education Act and subsequent amendments
give statutory powers to local education authorities to ensure that
children attend school and are given an education. I am interested
in the number of attendance penalty notices that have been issued
since 01/03/2014 to 01/09/2014, then 01/09/14 - 01/09/2015 and the number of these penalty notices that
relate to students from private fee paying schools and those
penalty notices that relate to students from public sector schools.
I am aware of s12, Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the £450
cost ceiling and ask the request be expanded to any penalty notices
issued between 01/09/2015 to date be included if this does not
breech the £450 cost limit.
Also the number of attendance letters sent out to havering parents from 01/09/2015 to date.

Yours faithfully,
Sh

Accessinfo, Havering Borough Council
