Fasting for Y5 & Y6 Children During Ramadan

Dear families
As the holy month of Ramadan will start on 10th March, we appreciate that some of our older children will be wanting to Fast. It is extremely important that we have parent/carer consent for children who will be fasting.
While we understand children will want to Fast, we would advise that children below Y5 keep their Fast during the weekend as when they are in school, they are very active and at this time of year there a lot of things happening.
For Health and Safety reasons if any child becomes unwell during their Fast, we will contact parents for permission to give them food and drink. Parents may be advised to take their child home. On a hot day we will also be asking those children who are fasting to stay indoors/in the shade.
Can you please complete the electronic permission in the consent section of the Arbor app.
Children will not be allowed to fast without parental consent.
Many thanks for your continued support
