Wirral Attendance Service

We are currently working on updating information on this page - please come back in the near future.

Wirral’s Attendance Service seeks to ensure that every child receives the maximum benefit from the education opportunities provided. We work in partnership with children and young people, parents and carers, school staff and other agencies to achieve this.

Parents who are concerned about their child’s school attendance should contact us on 0151 666 3433.

Office hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

If we are unable to take your call immediately, please leave a clear message stating your name, child’s name, date of birth, school and a telephone number and email address (optional). We will get back to you as soon as possible (typically the same day or the following day if the call is later in the afternoon).
