Attendance and Holiday Requests
Harlington Community School expects parents and carers to support their child's education by arranging family holidays during the school holiday periods.
Requests for holidays will always be refused. Only in exceptional circumstances will short periods of exceptional leave be granted, after a meeting with the Headteacher to discuss the circumstances.
Parents or carers who take their children out of school without prior notice or discussion will be referred to our Education Welfare Officer (EWO) Ms Robson, who may issue a fixed penalty notice.
In addition, any child who is taken out of school without notice may lose their place on roll.
