Dear Parent/Carer,

The Month of Ramadan

6 June 2017

I am aware that many of our Muslim students will, as usual, be observing Ramadan.

The advice for schools from The Muslim Council of Britain is that “in general, Muslims are encouraged not to use Ramadan as an opportunity to avoid aspects of normal life but rather to

cope with normal life under a different set of guidelines and conditions”.

Therefore, it is the expectation that students will follow the normal school curriculum during Ramadan. Whilst the challenge and discipline of fasting is to continue with normal everyday life, my staff will be aware of the commitment that students make to their faith.

The P.E. staff will, in planning lessons, be aware that students will need to avoid excessive exertion. However, students are still required to take part in P.E. lessons and events like Sports Day.

Staff will also, as always, praise students who are clearly making a special effort regarding their attitudes and behaviour.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Parent/Carer, The Month of Ramadan 6 June 2017 I am aware that many of our
