Hinde House Academy 2-16 is a multi-cultural and inclusive school. We value and respect people from all backgrounds, faiths, ethnicities, and cultures.
We are aware that the first day of Ramadan this year falls on either the 22nd or 23rd of March. We appreciate that this is a very significant time of year for our Muslim community. As an inclusive Academy, we would like to celebrate this special month together as one community.
During Ramadan some informative assemblies and lessons in (PSHE) Personal Social Health and Economic Education will focus on what Ramadan means to Muslims. These sessions will seek to balance out and reflect the views of our wider community, as we do with all our diverse religious celebrations.
We also understand that Ramadan can affect students in lessons due to fasting. Reasonable adjustments have been made in PE lessons so that students who are fasting can still take part with their peers.
Alternative arrangements have been put in place for students who might not want to be in the dining hall at break and lunch times.
If your child is participating in some fasting days please let us know that you are in support of this by contacting the office or your child's class teacher.
