At Holyhead, we value the co-operation of parents/carers in ensuring that our students attend on time each day. If your child is absent for any reason, you are asked to ring the Attendance Officer before 8.30 am. This assists us greatly in carrying out the necessary checks on attendance. We will contact you if your child is absent and in particular if they have been absent for three days and we have not heard from you.

In addition, we operate a ‘truancy call’ which consists of a text message on a mobile or a message on an answering machine informing you if your child has not registered during their first lesson of the day. This helps you and us to keep a check on attendance and possible truancy.

May we respectfully remind parents/carers that it is, in law, the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure that their children attend school.
