Durrington High School

Going beyond our best

Reporting Absence

To report student absence, please telephone the school on:
01903 705644 or  absence@durring.com

Truancy Call
This is the system we use 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 names of 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.

  • Durrington High School has made me become more confident in myself by encouraging me to just go for it! The extra-curricular activities have offered me good opportunities to work with new people and meet new friends, resulting in me feeling safe and content at school.
