Dear Parents


Religious Observance - Fasting


As Ramadan approaches I understand that some of you are intending to allow your children to fast. I know that many children want to be part of this exciting and challenging time of year. However as Ramadan falls in the summer term this could prove very difficult, particularly if the sunny weather continues. I have sought advice concerning this matter and understand that fasting pre-puberty is not compulsory.


My advice would be that those who wish to fast do so at the weekend. Alternatively your child could partake in fasting that allows for fluids. School days are long, busy and hopefully hot, it is potentially dangerous for a child not to drink any fluid during the day. If you insist on your child having a complete fast, you must complete the slip below, we then have it recorded, should your child require medical attention.


Attendance


We will only authorise 1 day absence to celebrate the end of Ramadan. If your child(ren) are absent for more than this, it will affect their attendance, be detrimental to their learning and will be recorded as unauthorised.


Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and I wish you all the best during this important event.
Yours sincerely


A Marrs
Head Teacher
