The number to call is 0121 777 2222 option 2. Please state your child’s full name, class and reason for absence. If a child arrives in class after registration closes they will be marked as an unauthorised absence. These persistent absences without contacting the school will be referred to the Local Education Authority (LA) and may be subject to a fine.
