PARENTS could be fined if their kids keep being late for school.
There are already fines if you miss school without getting permission. Now, schools in places like Essex, Hampshire and the West Midlands are bringing in fines for pupils who are late.
Warwickshire County Council has said families could get the penalty charges if children regularly arrive more than half an hour after the register is taken. Parents of students at Winter Gardens Academy in Essex face fines of £60 for lateness, which will double to £120 if not paid within three weeks, says The Sunday Times.
Neath Port Talbot Council said they would hand out a fine if a pupil turned up late at least ten times.
