Fasting during Ramadan

The month of Ramadan will start in April and some children in Years 5 and 6 may want to fast during the school day when we return on 20th April through till 12th May.

Hallfield Primary School’s governors respectfully suggest that parents should not encourage their children to fast all through the month of Ramadan whilst the children are in school.

With parental permission, children in Years 5 and 6 only may fast during the month of Ramadan from Tuesday 20th April onwards. As per the school policy, which can be found on our school website, we also ask that children do not fast on the days they have P.E. lessons. We do ask that you provide your child with some food and water in case he/she becomes ill during the long day at school.

Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, limited indoor space, reduced lunchtimes and bubbles remaining in place, we will not be able to offer opportunities for children to pray this year. 

If you wish for your child to fast at school, please complete and return to school this letter.
