We are aware that Friday 21st April or Saturday 22nd April are mostly likely to be Eid al-Fitr.
On behalf of the school, we would like to wish you a peaceful and happy celebration and an end to your fasting. Eid Mubarak to one and all.
We expect that our Muslim pupils will be celebrating on one of these days and participating in prayer and festivities.
We will gladly authorise this day, or whichever other day Eid falls, as ‘religious observance’
If your child will be off on Friday 21st of April for Eid please use this form to let us know: https://forms.office.com/e/9qchJQidFM
If your child is absent that day for any other reason please do let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the law states that only the one day of Eid itself will be an authorised absence. Additional days should be treated as unauthorised. We have taken advice from the Muslim Council of Great Britain and from a local Islamic faith school, who agree that this is the correct protocol.
