Daniel Moore, 31, received a £60 fine for keeping his son away from school for five days during term time.

He said he would pay up but called the local authority hypocritical and promised to return the note with markings in red.

Mistakes in the letter, sent on behalf of Devon’s education chief Dawn Stabb, included spellings such as “hte”, “guitly”, “notie” and “dteailed”.

“I’m not going to pretend I’m a spelling guru or typing expert,” said Mr Moore, of Exmouth, Devon. “But I’m also not the head of educa- tion in the county.

“This woman’s in charge of the future generation’s education, our children’s education and she is rubber stamping this tripe.”

Devon County Council apologised, blaming errors on a new IT system.

A spokesman said: “It is an embarrassing error. We have taken steps to ensure it won’t be repeated.”
