Ramadan March 2023

We know that Muslim families will be preparing for the month of Ramadan and we wish to support our older pupils who will be fasting during this time. We have taken advice so that we can provide appropriate support and guidance so that our pupils’ health and wellbeing needs are met.   

As you know, most schools of Shari’ah (Islamic law, based on the Qur’an and the practice of the Prophet) state that fasting during Ramadan is only obligatory from the age of puberty. Therefore, we are happy to support our Muslim pupils in Years 5 and 6 should they decide to fast. 

So that we can be as sensitive as possible to those children who are fasting, parents/carers are required to complete a form for each child in their family who will be fasting this year (year 5 & 6 pupils only). This form can be found in the link below.
