Welcome to

St Albans Girls' School

Reporting Absence

If your child is unable to attend school through illness or any other reason, please let us know in one of the following ways;

  • e-mailing  Mrs Kint, Attendance Administrator, at
  • calling the school absence line on 01727 853134, Option 1
  • using Edulink to report the absence

Please leave a message including your child's full name, form, the nature of their illness and/or the reason for their absence. Only a parent or carer can verify absence and contact needs to be made on each day of absence. You must inform the school of your childs absence by 9am. Parents/Carers will get a reminder by 10am if we have not heard from families. Unauthorised absences will be actioned by our attendance officer and may instigate our safeguarding protocols. 

Please do not e-mail in to for this purpose as this account is not necessarily checked first thing in the morning. This may lead to your message not reaching our Attendance Administrator, an unauthorised absence mark recorded for your child and a text being sent to you. 

If you are unable to use any of these services, please contact your child's Director of Learning who will discuss an alternative.
