Pupil Absence

Pupil Absence


Within Glasgow Primary School good attendance is encouraged at all times and children rewarded accordingly.  Parents are asked to advise if their son or daughter is going to be absent.  This should be done as early as possible on the first day of absence. If the young person is going to be absent for some time, it would be helpful to know at the earliest opportunity.  The school uses daily text messaging to inform parents and carers of absence if no contact is made.  All unexplained absence is investigated by the school and appropriate action taken. All calls must be made to the Pupil Absence Reporting Line on 0141 287 0039. The line is open between 08.00-15.30 Monday to Friday


Appointments during school hours


If your child has an unavoidable appointment, please give them a letter for their class teacher and then collect them from the school office at the specified time. The letter or appointment card should be presented to the school office when you collect your child as it will be copied and put in their file..
