I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Eid Mubarak in preparation for the end of the week. As children will be celebrating with families, they are entitled to take one day off school if Eid is to fall on Friday. If Eid falls on Saturday children will be expected to attend as normal. Those children who do not celebrate Eid will be expected to attend school as normal too. Therefore, any days taken outside of Eid will be classed as unauthorised. Even though Eid will be an authorised absence for one day, It will still be recorded as an absence and will be reflected in your child's attendance figure. However, this will not prevent your child from receiving any attendance incentives that they are entitled to.
On Monday 18thJune 2018, we will be celebrating Eid in school. Children are welcome to come dressed in their Eid clothes. In the afternoon, children will be having parties in class and can bring food in with them for their celebration's. Please ensure that any food that your child brings into school is shop bought and in its original packaging for allergy purposes.
We look forward to sharing the celebration of Eid across the school and providing the children with an opportunity to celebrate together with staff and children alike.
I am sure you will join us in encouraging your child to take part and enjoy their day.
Miss M Davies
Head of School
