Absence Reporting

If your child is going to be absent from school, please notify us at the earliest possible opportunity. To do so, please send a text message to the Absence Alert Text Number: 07860095273. Please note that you cannot telephone on this number – it is only for texting. You can also email us to notify us of an absence: absence@nhgs.co.uk or phone the school on 01422 244625 during office hours.


If your child is absent and you have forgotten to notify us, we will send a text message to the mobile telephone number registered with Emergency Contact Priority 1. A copy of the message will also be sent via email. If you do not have a mobile number, your landline will be used.


If you receive a text and your child is absent, please reply to the text message, or telephone the school and leave a message for the Admin Team, who will register the absence immediately.
