Ramadan is fast approaching and we will be sending out a separate letter with details about the arrangements for the period. However, following guidance, it is our understanding that fasting under the age of nine isn't advisable.
Ramadan this year is where the days are very long and fasting can be difficult even for adults. I understand that the fast will be more than 14 hours per day this year, which is not easy on young children who tend to be more active and require more energy and fluids. Therefore, we feel we can only accommodate pupils who are fasting in Year 5 and Year 6. Parents in these year groups will be asked to complete and return a form this week.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the Family Workers.
