ANTITRUANCY

Anti-Truancy System

Larbert High School has implemented a new anti-truancy system GroupCall (which you may have read about in the press) which automatically alerts parents if their child is missing from school. This technology enables the school to keep children safe and keep parents informed of where they are at all times. At other schools where this system has been introduced, it has proved to be effective at improving the attendance and the safety of the pupils.

The system will automatically send out one of the following:

  1. a text message to a mobile phone number OR
  2. a voicemail to a landline telephone number

Parents should let the school know in advance if their child will be absent by phoning the absence line on 01324 574611.
