I know that many of our children will be fasting for Ramadan from next Tuesday. From past experience, we have found that by lunchtime many of the children are hungry and then choose to have a school dinner.
This can cause issues in the kitchen as the dinners are allocated based on the number of children who have asked for one in the morning.
I would, therefore, like to ask that children who are attempting to fast bring a packed lunch into school with them if they get hungry during the day.
If your children is usually school dinners and you do not want them to have a packed lunch, they must request a school dinner. This will be charged to your school account if the children then decide to eat at lunchtime.
By allocating the children with a lunch, it helps the kitchen staff to prepare the correct amount of meals.
We also, as usual, request DAILY consent from home that your child is going to fast on that day. If they do not hand in a letter each day, we will give them a lunch.
Children will not be allowed to withdraw from PE whilst fasting as it is a statutory part of the curriculum.
