Pupil Absence Reporting

Glasgow's mainstream primary and secondary schools operate a generic pupil absence reporting phone line during the school week.

If you have to report your child off school for any reason then you should phone 0141 287 0039 and provide the details requested by the operator.

The operator will then make sure the information is passed on to your child's school.

If your child attends an additional support for learning school or a Glasgow nursery then you should continue to phone your child's school/ nursery directly to report the absence.
