Truancy Call

Truancy Call is a system we use at Durrington High School to alert parents that their child has not registered or signed in at school. When all the Registers have been entered on to the computer the students who have been marked absent are transferred to Truancy Call.

Once Truancy Call has been triggered, and we aim to do this by the middle of the morning, a call or text message will be received by the parent.

We would advise you to reply promptly to this request as Truancy Call keeps calling until it gets an answer. This can be a phone call or a text message.
